KSC Receives Community Partnership Grant
Michael Antonucci, associate professor and chair of the American Studies program, has received a $2,000 Community Partnership Grant from the American Studies Association Keene to support the project, “What is Local Living Economy?” “The funds will go to student interns who will be assisting Jen Risley over at the Hannah Grimes Center [in downtown Keene],” said Antonucci.
The two, 10-week internships will provide the students practical experience while examining place and sustainability as contemporary and historical phenomena in the United States. They will also assist the Hannah Grimes Center in applying American Studies scholarship and perspectives in its community work as its staff engages complex matters of regional identity, culture, and economy. The student interns will present their work in June 2012 at the Rural Heritage Institute (RHI) held at Sterling College in Craftsbury Common, Vermont.
KSC is one of only four academic institutions and the only liberal arts college selected for one of these ASA grants.
