Kline receives NSF grant for research on public policy and mobilization

Anthropology professor Nolan Kline has been awarded a new three-year federal research grant in the amount of $169,996 from the National Science Foundation.

Using an engaged anthropological approach that emphasizes collaboration between academics and community-based organizations, the project seeks to examine how policies related to immigration and sexual identity can intersect, resulting in social mobilization and countermobilization, and potentially weakening or reshaping social boundaries.

The award is part of NSF’s Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program, which is intended to facilitate research by faculty at predominantly undergraduate institutions and encourage educational opportunities for undergraduate students.
