Prof Perea wins two major awards from the UC Humanities Research Institute

Professor Perea’s book project Sound Relations: A History of Music, Media, and Indigenous Self-Determination in Alaska won two major awards from the University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI): the UCHRI Junior Faculty Manuscript Workshop and the UC President’s Faculty Research Fellowship in the Humanities.

The awards, to be administered in the 2016-2017 academic year, were determined in conjunction with UCHRI’s 10-member Advisory Committee, which comprises faculty from all 10 University of California campuses. A separate advisory committee selected the eight faculty recipients of the UC President’s Faculty Research Fellowship, a grant that supports compelling humanities research throughout the UC system.
