Conference Support Grants awarded

The Grant Awards Committee was faced with stiff competition for Conference Support Grants in this inaugural third (Summer) cycle of NCIS grant awards. Following deliberations, they have awarded grants to two members, both of whom are attending the NCIS conference "Making Connections, Meeting Challenges" at UMass Amherst this month:
Boria SAX, giving a paper on “The Thanksgiving Turkey as a Sacrificial Offering” in the strand Creating/Recreating Genealogies: The Invention of Tradition;
Gavin WILK, giving a paper on “Bravery and devotion to duty”: Irish Immigrant Nurses in the American Red Cross during World War I” in the strand Communities of Resistance: Immigrants and the Indigenous.
Congratulations to the recipients, and to those who were not successful this time do please apply again. The deadline for the Fall cycle is 1 October, for conferences taking place after 1 October 2019.
