English Prof Receives Prestigious Killam Fellowship
SETS faculty member Christine Bold received the Prestigious Killam Fellowship. Uncovering the "hidden histories" of Indigenous vaudeville actors such as Princess Chinquilla is the goal of Professor Bold. Her two-year $140,000 award provides release from teaching and administrative duties so that she can work full time on a research project that she says upends long-held notions of the role Native peoples play in the popular culture of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Congratulations!
