David Aday, Department of Sociology and American Studies Program
Aday's proposal allows William & Mary undergraduate students to assist him in investigating how communities organize – or don’t – to pursue collectively defined interests and outcomes, with an emphasis on understanding “community capacity building.” Research will take place in collaboration with medical professionals and with the goal of improving health in the community of Paraiso, Dominican Republic. .
Ann Marie Stock, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures
Stock's proposal will create a film documentary exploring and recording the accelerated transformation in Cuba as a result of expression through new media – digital video, computer-generated animation, and video art. William & Mary undergraduates will be engaged in creating and occupying an interactive online site where Cuban and U.S. culture agents (artists and students principal among them) meet, communicate, and collaborate.
