The University of California Humanities Research Institute has announced its 2019-20 grantees, with two members of the UC Santa Cruz Anthropology faculty among the recipients.

Assistant Professor Jerry Zee has been recognized with the Junior Faculty Manuscript Workshop for his manuscript, Desert/Storm: Experiments on a Chinese Dust-Stream. According to Zee's faculty website, this work explores various material permutations of sand and wind - the life and course of a Chinese dust storm, though successive phases of matter - as sites of political, anthropological, and scientific experiment.

Associate Professor J. Cameron Monroe, as part of his work with the Archaeological Research Center and along with the Center for World History, has received a Conference Grant that will allow them to host a conference next year titled, Caribbean Shores: Networks, Materiality, and Resistance Under Slavery. Monroe was part of a six-person team for this grant. The date of the conference is yet to be determined, but updates will be posted on the ARC website.

The UCHRI distributes over $100,000 in grant funds to support multi-campus collaborations for a variety of endeavors. Grantees represent nine UC campuses and hail from a range of departments.
