UCHRI Award for Jean-Baptiste

Rachel Jean-Baptiste, an Associate Professor in the History Department, has received a grant from the University of California Humanities Research Institute in support of a new faculty working group. Co-directed with Anneeth Kaur Hundle of UC-Merced, the group, "The Crisis of Diversity Within the Multiversity: Rethinking African and Africana Studies at the University of California," will gather scholars from around the UC system in two interdisciplinary workshops. Its goal is to explore the connections between contemporary research in African and Africana Studies and new possibilities for diversifying and internationalizing the UC system.
