Rebecca Tiger awarded Whiting fellowship

Rebecca Tiger (Sociology/Anthropology) has been awarded a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation for a project titled Public Sociology, Digital Media and Social Change. Rebecca’s goal for this project is to develop training in public sociology and the digital media tools that are becoming central to the public dissemination of sociological knowledge in order to incorporate these approaches into her courses. The grant provides support for a one-month residency during the summer of 2013 at JustPublics@365, the recently established digital media and social justice center housed at The City University of New York’s Graduate Center and funded by the Ford Foundation.
