Christina Novakov-Ritchey (UCLA, Culture and Performance) and Marcos Cisneros (UC Berkeley, Rhetoric) are Co-PIs of Catastrophe and Revolution: The (Post)socialist Studies Group, which was just awarded UCHRI’s Multicampus Graduate Student Working Group Grant. Their working group brings together graduate students from six UC campuses and seven different disciplines in the humanities and humanistic social sciences to theorize (post)socialism as a global resource for imagining alternatives (political, cultural, economic, etc.) to our present. UCHRI funds will be used to launch a public digital platform featuring writing, podcasts, webinars, art, and media content from group members and their research collaborators abroad.
UCHRI supports UC PhD students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences as they collaborate on innovative agendas in ways that contribute to the advancement of the specific working group topic and the humanities as a whole.
