HRTS faculty member Robin Reineke has been chosen by UArizona's Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry (CCI) as one of the first two recipients of the Mellon-Fronteridades Faculty Fellowship program. Each awardee will receive $15,000 over a five-month period to complete innovative border research and curriculum projects. The Mellon-Fronteridades Faculty fellows from the College of Humanities and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences aim to center and elevate local communities and dialogues in UArizona scholarship and education.
Reineke’s project Forensic Citizenship in the Borderlands, is an interdisciplinary visual and oral history project that will document, analyze and share the stories of civilian forensic experts on both sides of the Arizona-Sonora border. The project will create an interactive website to highlight the work and explore forensics in the landscape of the borderlands.
