Geographers receive Center for 21st Century Studies grant for interdisciplinary collaboration

Kristin Sziarto (Geography), Anna Mansson McGinty (Geography and Women’s and Gender Studies), and Caroline Seymour-Jorn (French, Italian, and Comparative Literature) are among the first group of recipients of awards in the Center for 21st Century Studies’ new C21 Collaboratory initiative, which offers grants for interdisciplinary research collaborations among UWM faculty, students, staff, and members of the community.

Sziarto, Mansson McGinty, and Seymour-Jorn have since 2010 collaborated with Muslim community members on the Muslim Milwaukee Project. Their Collaboratory award of $1350 will be used to develop a network of scholars with related research agendas from around the Milwaukee area, and continue the focus group phase of their project.
