Kevin Alexander '13, left, and Cornell landscape architecture students, plant sunflower seeds to give away at Utica Monday Night.
Utica Transforms Gritty to Green
Located only 10 miles from Hamilton’s campus, Utica often seems a world away. The city is riddled with concerns of unemployment, environmentalism and historical preservation. Kevin Alexander '13 is the first Levitt Center-funded Rust to Green Civic Research Fellow and is dividing his time between an internship with the Rust to Green initiative and a research project with Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology George Hobor.

Slacktivism is the New Activism
The Facebook group “Stand with Youth, Call for Obama's Leadership toward Bold Climate Action,” currently has 22,112 members. But how many of them called the White House in preparation for the UN Climate Change Conference? Activists who give their support but contribute little else are called slacktivists and are increasingly common with the growth of the Internet. Emily Gerston ’11, who received a Levitt grant, is learning how the Internet has affected political participation. More ...

Belkin '11 Examines Women's Roles in Bollywood Films

Watching a Bollywood film in India is more like a screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show than a typical American viewing experience. Viewers participate: they yell, dance and sing along during the three-hour spectacle. But for Kirkland Summer Research Associate Jori Belkin ’11, her interest extends far beyond the theater; Belkin is researching the role and perception of women in Bollywood films.  More ...

Caitlin O'Dowd '12 in Mokattam with students at the school run by the Spirit of Youth Association (S.O.Y.).
Environmentalism in the Garbage City
After our trash leaves our hands, we in the U.S. like to pretend it no longer exists. But to people in Mokattem, an informal settlement just outside Cairo, Egypt, sorting and recycling garbage is essential to their livelihood. Working with Assistant Professor of Government Peter Cannavo, Caitlin O’Dowd ’12 was awarded an Emerson grant to investigate the relationship between the waste system and social justice in Mokattam.

Specht ’11 Fights for Women’s Rights in Massachusetts
In a courtroom in Boston, representatives from the National Organization of Women (NOW) sit in on a decision of children’s custody. They are there to remind the judge to be fair and impartial, as a representative of women’s rights worldwide. As a legislative intern with the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW), Lennie Specht ’11 works to improve the legislation regarding women’s issues in the state of Massachusetts.

Gately ’12 and Acquisto ’13 Uncover Minoan Past in Crete
In 1600 B.C., during the Minoan civilization on Crete, Gournia was bustling with the activity of a small city, with construction of the enormous central palace underway. Working with John McEnroe, the John and Anne Fischer Professor in Fine Arts, Maeve Gately ’12 and Kiernan Acquisto ’13 are excavating the site to learn more about its ancient past. More ...

Edward Lamere ’11 Exploring Physics Forces
Four main forces govern the behavior of all matter in the world around us: gravitational, electromagnetic, strong nuclear and weak nuclear. Physicists believe that, at large enough energies, these four forces can be described by a single theory rather than four separate theories. Working for his second summer under Professor of Physics Brian Collett and Professor of Physics Gordon Jones, Edward Lamere ’11 is working on a project to increase the accuracy of an experiment that links the electromagnetic and weak nuclear forces called aCORN.

Louis Boguchwal '12
The Rabbit and The Fox: A Mathematical Fable
In the forest, populations of rabbits and foxes change relative to one another. Mathematicians model these population fluctuations using differential equations. But mathematical predator-prey models have limitations; for example, the models do not account for rabbits and foxes traversing different paths from water to food source. Combining differential equations and network optimization, Louis Boguchwal ’12 hopes to improve these standard models with guidance from Assistant Professor of Mathematics Andrew Dykstra. More ...
Randall Mason '11
A Glimpse into the Gay Black World
Edgy, scary, stylish, sinful: gay culture is viewed in different ways by different communities in the United States. But for black men in the LGBTQQI community, their doubly marginalized status creates tensions in all of the communities to which they belong. Working with Associate Professor of Africana Studies Angel Nieves, Randall Mason ’11 is using his Emerson grant to investigate the lives of black gay men. More ...
The trip concluded with a visit to Landmannalaugar in central Iceland.
