Rodríguez awarded UMD-SI Seed Grant

Professor Chantel Rodríguez has been awarded the UMD-SI Seed Grant for her proposal, “The U.S. Latina/o Health History Project: Developing Digital Resources to Engage Public Learning and Inspire Innovative Scholarship.”

The groundbreaking U.S. Latina/o health history project will involve collecting material objects and documenting personal stories related to traditional Latina/o health practices. This UMD-SI collaboration is a crucial step toward the ultimate goal of launching a national-level digital project to establish an invaluable cache of primary source materials that will engage public learning and inspire innovative scholarship.
