UC MEXUS grant awarded to Tricia Wang

Tricia Wang and Professor Barry Brown (Communication) have received a $25,000 grant from UC MEXUS for  “Appropriate networks: Developing appropriate communication technologies for rural & international links.”  This funded project bridges social science and computer science to examines technology usage between migrant and rural-Mexican communities.  This project also builds off of the fieldwork that Leah Muse-Orlinoff and Tricia conducted in Mexico and will support these students’ fieldwork in Mexico Fall quarter.  Tricia particularly acknowledges that this successful grant was only possible because of Leah initiating their previous collaboration and sharing the resources she has access to at CCIS.  (June ’08)
