Three Awardees of LLC's Publicly Engaged Research

and Storywork Fellowship

The Language, Literacy, and Culture Program is pleased to announce that three of its doctoral students have received a Publicly Engaged Research and Storywork Fellowship this spring. The funds for this fellowship program were earmarked by Professor Beverly Bickel, LLC Clinical Research Professor Emerita, before her retirement in 2022.

Jessica Burstrem (cohort 23) for "Interested: How Shareholder Advocacy and 50 Years of Indigenous Activism Changed the Game and the Name of the Washington Football Team." Jessica plans to use her funding to perform community-based participatory research with members of American Indian Tribal Nations in Wisconsin who were active in the shareholder advocacy phase of this movement.  

Dane Galloway (cohort 26) for "Unpacking the Home." Dane plans to use their funds to produce a short ethnographic documentary on family rituals of remembering, turning the camera homeward to capture the details and dilemmas of their own family's relocation ritual of transposing the visual family history from one set of walls to another.

Gina Lewis (cohort 25) for "Seneca Community Church Story Quilt Project." Gina plans to use her funds to support the activities and creation of a story quilt with the church community that is geographically situated within an African American descendant community in Germantown, MD, and whose cemetery is located on the grounds of the National Park Service's Seneca Stone Cutting Mill and Quarry historic site.

Congratulations on your Fellowships!
