The Shifting Borders of Race and Identity
The Hall Center, in partnership with Haskell Indian Nations University, conducted “The Shifting Borders of Race and Identity: A Research and Teaching Project on the Native American and African American Experience,” a two-year project supported by the Ford Foundation.
Kansas History Online is a project of the Hall Center in collaboration with the Kansas State Historical Society. The goal is to create an accessible and comprehensive e-history of Kansas, an encyclopedic array of articles touching on every key aspect of state history. This project was made possible in part by a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Featured Resident Fellow
Ani Kokobobo, Assistant Professor of Slavic Languages & Literatures, will use the Humanities Research Fellowship to work on her book, "Freaking Outsiders and Monsters Within--Russian Realism and the Grotesque, 1869-1899." Through an analysis of the grotesque style in the span of three decades, the project addresses the effects of social reforms (like the 1861 Liberation of the Serfs) on how national identity is conceptualized in Russian realism.
