Congratulations to Paulina Przystupa, Jaque Kocer, and Martin Pfeiffer who have been awarded a Center for Regional Studies Fellowship for 2018/2019.

Paulina, a graduate student in the Archaeology program, received the award for her dissertation research that compares the architecture and location of historic Native American boarding schools and European-American orphanages in NM, OK, CA, and WA to explore how changing views of childhood and ethnicity influenced the design and placement of these institutions. 

Jacque, also a graduate student in the Archaeology program, received the award for her dissertation research that examines communities of practice and communities of identity in the Gallina area of northern New Mexico as materialized in ceramics.  

Martin, graduate student in the Ethnology program, received a one-semester renewal of his Fellowship from the Center for his research,  focused upon several characteristics of the nuclear industry/establishment in New Mexico, with particular attention to Sandia National Laboratories here in Albuquerque.
