Closed (2) CRG Archive Project

Applications for Spring 2019 are now closed for this project.

The Center for Race and Gender (CRG) is an interdisciplinary research center that conducts and supports research on the impact of race and gender on critical questions of social justice. The CRG directs policy and shapes academic thinking through supporting a multidisciplinary network of UC Berkeley faculty and students, bringing scholars to the UC Berkeley campus, and running research projects that drive change. CRG organizes many forums, conferences, and lectures on a wide range of interdisciplinary topics. We need a better sense of what we have done so we can convey it to the public.


The student would provide assistance with assessing the archive of events and activities through examining recordings, photos, and written documentation, in order to create data that would be mined in order to present the reach and impact of CRG. The student would be invited to help conceptualize how best to present this information. The student may also be invited to assist with social medial outreach. The student would be invited to participate in meetings and events with researchers at the Center and to work as a member of our team.
