Consortium Provides Area Studies Faculty with Course Development Grants

Proposals from four UMaine faculty were selected for revision with course development grants:

  • Dr. Hollie Adams (English) will redesign Canadian Literature (ENG 336) as a topics course in Canadian Literary Modernism.
  • Karen Miller, M.A. (Anthropology)  will revise Introduction to Folklore (ANT 221) and The U.S. Folklore Experience (ANT 330) to include significant Canadian content.  In addition, she will assign students in both classes to contribute to an ARCGIS mapping project to plot the folklore they collect with linkable points.
  • Dr. Micah Pawling (History) will significantly revise Amerindians of the Northeast: A History (HTY 481) to include research in collaboration with Native communities in present-day Canada.
  • Dr. Stefano Tijerina (Maine Business School) will redesign the in-person course Canadian-U.S. Business: A Comparison (MGT 328 / ECO 340) to offer it as an online option.
