Chadwick Fellows 2015–2016
Recipients of the 2015–2016 Chadwick Fellowship are:
Faculty: Karen Metheny
Lecturer in Gastronomy Karen Metheny (GRS’02) will fund work on her project, “The Cultural ‘Other’ in Colonial New England: The Duality of Maize.” This multidisciplinary study of maize and its significance to New England colonists will challenge its portrayal as a famine food or poor substitute for wheat. The Chadwick Fellowship will allow Metheny to conduct archival research at a number of New England historical societies and will enhance teaching materials for a number of Gastronomy classes.
Staff: Ed Wozniak
Distance Education Senior Media Producer Ed Wozniak (COM’06) will explore “Best Practices and Relationship Building in Media Production,” with the specific purpose of developing the expertise needed to establish a more accessible online environment in distance learning programs. Wozniak will spend a week “shadowing” the director of media services at the University of Wisconsin–Extension, while also attending the University’s Distance Teaching and Learning Conference.
