This fall, a new cohort of seven graduate students will participate in ISSI’s Graduate Fellows Program: Xavier Durham, Irene Farah Rivadeneyra, Daryl Mangosing, Martha Ortega Mendoza, Catherine Park, Valentín Sierra, and Rashad Arman Timmons. The Graduate Fellows Program provides two years of training and mentorship to an interdisciplinary mix of advanced graduate students who are in the midst of dissertation research and writing about social change. The new Fellows come from a range of fields: African Diaspora Studies, Education, City and Regional Planning, Public Health, Social Welfare, and Sociology. Their projects tackle a variety of pressing issues related to race and class in the US, including policing, drug use, undocumented graduate students, and Indigenous culture-based mental health care. The new cohort of Fellows will join seven returning Fellows. Read more about the Fellows here.
