Dinah Dodds Endowment for International Education - Grant Recipients Presentations

Date: 3:30pm - 5:00pm PDT April 19 Location: Smith Hall

Every year the Dinah Dodds Endowment funds the projects of students participating on Lewis & Clark overseas programs. The endowment seeks to support students with innovative projects or research ideas that complement or enhance their overseas program. Students of art, biology, history, political science (and more!) have used the grant to fund research that has broadened their perspectives on their program country, has been used as a starting point for their senior thesis, and in many cases has left a lasting impact on the group or community they worked with beyond their time in-country. 

We welcome the Lewis & Clark community to join us for presentations by the 2018 recipients of the Dinah Dodds Endowment. In addition to celebrating the successes of these scholars, we hope this event will spark ideas for future overseas participants to fully engage with their programs through thoughtful research, intentional engagement with the local community, and encourage them to share their knowledge and discoveries with the LC community. 

Presenters include: 

  • Cole Harris and Adaira Grohs: Local Perceptions in Arusha on Tanzanian Electronic Cash
  • Samantha Bereny: Understanding the structural aspects of venom biology through advanced imaging practices
  • Maya Hernandez: Reckoning with the rhetoric behind the “criminal immigrant” narrative
  • Emma Celebrezze: Diverse Expressions of Mythic Trope: A Comparison of Faeries in Scottish Folktale and Video Game Lore
  • Nicole Godbout: Examining Voluntary Sustainability Certifications in Arusha, Tanzania
  • Ronan Hall: The Sanya Archive Project; Life Experiences and Memories of Tokyo’s Elderly Homeless Population
  • Cora Layman: Life as a Venom Biologist: Understanding the Practices and Techniques of Utilizing Venom
