ICGC Welcomes UWC Virtual Fellows

ICGC welcomes three virtual fellows from the University of the Western Cape (UWC), South Africa in Spring semester 2021. 

Sam Longford (History), Phokeng Setai (Anthropology), and Lee Walters (Women’s and Gender Studies) hold virtual residencies with ICGC from January to May 2021. Our exchange program is made possible through a long-term collaboration between ICGC and the Center for Humanities Research (CHR) at UWC and supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Graduate student fellows enjoy the benefits of collaborative activities to enhance their education and research. 

The fellowships enable the scholars to devote their time to dissertation research and writing supported by access to the University of Minnesota’s extensive library system. Each fellow is connected with ICGC affiliated faculty members to provide mentorship during this period, as well as benefiting from the community of graduate students, faculty and local organizations connected to ICGC.  Each scholar will give a presentation on their work in the weekly Brown Bag Talk Series, which highlights works in progress by members of the ICGC community and visiting scholars.

We look forward to learning from the fellows while they take part in the virtual community we continue to foster in ICGC.
