GWS Department Head Monica Casper, SIROW director Sally Stevens, and recent Ph.D. November Papaleo are extremely excited to share the news that the UA, in collaboration with The Feminist Wire, has been awarded one of 16 grants (out of 266 applicants!) from the MacArthur Foundation's ProjectConnect.
The UA/TFW team will host workshops for middle-school children on digital activism for social justice. The cornerstone of the project is the collaborative creation, production, and use of LoveMaps, a GIS social app that will enable participants to locate, follow, and learn from positive examples of social justice. Students will discuss their collaborations and produce content for TFW, taking the form of co-authored articles, digital media, interviews, and other engagements.
