Katherine Jensen awarded Race, Ethnicity, and Indigeneity Faculty Fellowship

Congratulations to Katherine Jensen, Assistant Professor of Sociology and International Studies, for being awarded a Race, Ethnicity, and Indigeneity (REI) Faculty Fellowship from the UW-Madison Institute for Research in the Humanities!

REI fellows receive their regular salary and are released from teaching and service duties for the semester of the fellowship so that they can focus on their research.  In addition, REI fellows attend weekly seminars and discussions that offer opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue in the humanities. As an ethnographer, Jensen’s research interests include race/racism, political sociology, and forced migration in the Americas, with a focus on Brazil.
