University of Arkansas faculty, students earn fellowships

Some of the biggest issues facing the country, including immigration and gender roles, will be part of the focus of fellowships recently bestowed by the University of Arkansas' Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics and Society.

Two of the fellowships were presented to Juan Jose Bustamante and Lisa Hinrichsen, both faculty members in Arkansas' J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. 

Bustamente will continue his inquiry on “Building Community: Latina/o Narratives from the American South on Race, Citizenship and Labor Challenges.” Hinrichsen will use the fellowship to support “Hidden Pleasures: Intimacy in Southern Spaces.”

The students selected for fellowships were doctoral candidates Nathaniel Conley, Michael Shane Powers, Madeline Forrest Ramsey and Jordan Savage, and master’s candidate Karly Eaton.
