The faculty committee of Jane Prophet, Associate Dean for Research and Creative Work, Endi Poskovic, Professor, and Phoebe Gloeckner, Associate Professor awarded the four grants to the students. In announcing the recipients, Prophet said, “Their proposals represented the way Stamps curricula support a wonderful range of ideas and media.”
Poskovic added that undergraduate research opportunities give students an important lesson that will guide them in their work in the future. “This is an excellent opportunity for Stamps students to get involved with the process of applying for funding in support of their creative work and research, and to receive constructive feedback. It allows them a taste of what it is to do this on a regular basis, which, for an artist and designer, is an integral component of their work.”
Using diverse, creative approaches, the students will explore themes related to existential dread, ecology, anthropology, and water quality. In their own words, the students describe the approaches they will take in their research.
