Call for Student or Faculty Researchers
Applications Due January 31, 2022
The Global Change & Sustainability Center and UtahPresents invite faculty and students to apply to be part of a cohort of ~6-10 interdisciplinary scholars to engage with All My Relations performance collective (AMR). The cohort, including faculty and students from a wide range of research perspectives, will meet during Spring and Summer 2022 as the AMR collective develops their immersive and multimedia performance GIZHIBAA GIIZHIG | Revolving Sky, exploring the intersections of science and sacred knowledge and creating a lens to view indigiqueerness and the current climate crisis (see https://www.allmyrelations.earth/revolvingsky).
The University of Utah cohort will develop and share original research with the AMR team to explore interdisciplinary connections and personal narratives. The cohort will meet three times (virtually) in the Spring 2022 semester and gather for an intensive in-person collaboration with the members of AMR July 15-18, 2022 at the Taft Nicholson Center in Centennial Valley, Montana (see https://taft-nicholson.utah.edu/). Specific participant contributions will be defined as the collaboration unfolds. We offer $500 to each scholar that participates fully.
GIZHIBAA GIIZHIG | Revolving Sky will be presented at the University of Utah in Spring 2023.
Faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Applications due January 31, 2022. Applications will be reviewed by partner leaders, and scholars will be notified of selection by February 11, 2022.
