Dr. Amanda Minks Awarded Fulbright Scholar Grant
Dr. Amanda Minks was awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to teach and conduct research in Nicaragua for seven months in 2016. She will teach a class on Music and Culture at the Universidad Centroamericana in Managua, and conduct archival research on mid-20th century discourses of Nicaraguan folklore and indigenous culture. She will also travel to the autonomous regions of the eastern coast, the site of her previous research, to give presentations drawn from her book Voices of Play: Miskitu Children’s Speech and Song on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua (University of Arizona Press, 2013). She is pictured here with children on Corn Island during her linguistic anthropology fieldwork in 2003.
Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)
At the University of Oklahoma, the Honors College makes sure that undergraduate researchers have the support they need to work on the frontiers of knowledge. Through an inspired program of research support for undergraduate students, the Honors College partners with the Provost’s Office each semester to sponsor undergraduate research projects. In other words, at the University of Oklahoma undergraduates do high-level research in their fields long before they graduate. We believe that high-achieving undergraduate students should set their own goals, and there should be no preset limit to achievement. Announcements and deadlines for each term are made in the early Fall and Spring.
