Stamps Professor Rebekah Modrak has been invited to join the new editorial board of Spark, the online magazine of the National Center for Institutional Diversity, for a two-year term. She will be working alongside a diverse group of editors dedicated to utilizing scholarship to spark curiosity and engagement in readers. NCID announces: “We believe that scholarship has the potential to transform society and positively impact minoritized and marginalized communities and the systems in which we live. But for scholarship to have the greatest impact, it must reach a diverse — and public — audience.”
Her role on the editorial board will include editing 12 pieces throughout her term, editing a series focused on her area of scholarly expertise, and engaging in meetings to discuss work as public scholars.
