IAH Podcast | Elizabeth Engelhardt, Professor, American Studies

Elizabeth Engelhardt is looking closely at the history and culture of boarding houses in the U.S. South. “There is a surprising number of stories of people re-inventing themselves, passing their gender, passing their race,” she reports. Engelhardt’s research during her current Faculty Fellowship Program begins not by defining the boarding house, but using research to tell their stories.

Honors Carolina and the Institute collaborate on student apprenticeship opportunities

The Institute for the Arts and Humanities and Honors Carolina—with the generous support of the William C. Friday Leadership Fund—are proud to offer an exciting new opportunity for Honors Carolina students to assist IAH Fellows in their current research projects. Five research apprenticeships will be awarded for the spring of 2017, with students receiving stipends of $2,000. In an effort to initiate and foster new collaborative partnerships, preference will be given to faculty/student pairings that have not previously worked together on funded research projects. Interdisciplinary projects are highly encouraged.
