Two CLA-connected projects have received funding from Minnesota's Historical and Cultural Heritage Fund (i.e. Legacy money).

The Department of American Indian Studies has received $270,820 for Phase Two of the Ojibwe People's Dictionary. Phase One launched just this past January 23; Phase Two promises to be even more of what you can find in the current dictionary, but will enhance the virtual museum, make the dictionary more friendly to younger students, and incorporate feedback from users.
Friends of the Immigration History Research Center, received $23,794 for the project Houses of Worship: The Mosaic of Religion and Ethnicity in the Twin Cities, 1849-1924, co-led by Jeanne Kilde (Religious Studies). The goal of this project is to bring together qualitative and quantitative data -- stories and numbers -- about the ethnic and immigration history that has been at the University's doorstep for the last century. Researchers from the project are using resources at the Minnesota Population Center and GIS projects on campus, and their materials will be housed at the IHRC when the project is completed.

Post-Doc Associate Wadad Kadi (History) was awarded the Middle East Medievalists association's Lifetime Achievement Award in December. This comes as a recognition for her distinguished scholarship and seminal contribution to knowledge of the Islamic world and scholarship in the Middle Ages.

These CLA professors are recipients of 2012 Imagine Fund grants. Congratulations!
