Description

Drs. Glenn Martinez and Elena Foulis, along with collaborators, Dr. Fitzgerald, and Grad student Palo Pinillos Chavez received the The Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme grant ($18,000) for the project, “Documenting of Latina/os/x in Ohio stories during COVID-19 through performed storytelling.” The project seeks to collect oral histories of Latinas/os/x during COVID-19 in Ohio and to make them available to the public on a digital platform.
