July 2011 Archives

We invite faculty and graduate students to submit entries for "People" section

Our primary goal for the Digest this year is to increase announcements in the "People" section. We invite faculty and graduate students to help us by submitting entries on the following: presentations, publications, jobs, external awards and fellowships. Staff will rely on faculty, graduate students and advisers for these notifications.

Additionally, we'll announce the following graduate school, collegiate, and department milestones: passing preliminary examinations, MA's and PhD's conferred, and internal awards, nominations and fellowships. We want to be able to share this information with our American Studies community as well as build a history of achievements of our graduate students and faculty. Please submit your entries to amstdy@umn.edu.
