Kirkland College Summer Research Associates Begin Their Work
The Kirkland Endowment is sponsoring three students to do work this summer on women's issues. Selena Carríon '10 will be working with Associate Professor of Africana Studies Angel Nieves on South African female activists in the anti-apartheid movement. Robyn Gibson '10 is researching the black consciousness movement in South Africa, also working with Professor Nieves. Sushmita Preetha '11 will address NGO activism in Bangladesh, asking "at what cost?" She will work with Visiting Assistant Professor of Women's Studies Joyce Barry.
The students will talk about their summer experiences at the Diversity and Social Justice Project's student conference in the fall.
