- Project allows anthro grad student to return to her fieldwork site
Joanne Nucho, anthropology graduate student, has received a $5,000 Wenner-Gren Engaged Anthropology Grant to organize an ethnographic filmmaking workshop for young adults in Lebanon. Her project, "Imagining the City: Ethnographic Film Workshop in Bourj Hammoud," will create an opportunity for students to learn ethnographic filmmaking techniques as well as no-cost methods of distribution via social networking. Through this project, the students will have the opportunity to create their own representations of their community and their city, as well as their everyday life experiences in Bourj Hammoud, where Joanne conducted her fieldwork research. The project begins December 2013.
Nucho is also a current UCI Chancellor’s Club Fellow, an honor that carries a $10,000 prize and recognizes UCI’s six best and brightest graduate students.
