In September 2016, PhD candidate Kathryn Vaggalis received the Center for Migration Research Graduate Student Grant, a $500 award designated for students performing migration-related research. The grant supports students in the Center's mission to promote, coordinate, and facilitate innovative high-quality interdisciplinary research on how human migration both shapes and is shaped by the social landscapes in which it takes place. Kathryn received the award to help fund her visit to the National Archives in Washington, DC to conduct research for her dissertation on early-twentieth century immigrant Greek and Japanese picture brides.
Ben Chappell will be speaking at the Kansas City Museum this week, discussing his research at Mexican American softball tournaments. It should be an interesting event, somewhere between an academic conference, an old-timer’s game, and Antiques Roadshow. The initiative is aimed at developing the collection of the National Museum of American History. Participants will also get a shout-out at the Royals game on Thursday, so look for me on the jumbotron. More info (Smithsonian web site) »
