The Penn Arts & Sciences Dean’s Global Inquiries Fund, an initiative that encourages the collective investigation of global topics across the liberal arts, recently awarded its second round of grants.
Congrats to University of Pennsylvania Department of Music Professor Carol Muller for being awarded a grant for her project, "Trauma and the Arts, South Africa in Dialogue with Philadelphia". This project "brings together faculty and leaders in Philadelphia community organizations and schools, as well as South African educators and artists. The goal is to create a culture of trauma-informed learning and instruction, using drawing, dancing, singing, acting, and storytelling, as a vehicle for the emotional and psychological effects of trauma. In addition to building an online resource for knowledge-sharing, the project will include a three-day conference for all stakeholders."
