New Faculty 2013: Meet Chamara Jewel Kwakye

The African American and Africana Studies Program and the Department of Gender and Women's Studies are excited to welcome Chamara Jewel Kwakye to their faculty!
 
Kwakye's work at the University of Kentucky will revolve around the examination of the life experiences of black women and girls particularly focusing on their educational experiences. Like many who come to UK and join departments within the College of Arts & Sciences, Kwakye was drawn by the interdisciplinary approach that the school fosters. Another draw was the college's commitment to digital studies which Kwakye hopes to capitalize on with her new research project focusing on how young black women use performance and social media to express their lives.

New Faculty 2013: Meet Solomon Harrar

The Department of Statistics is excited to welcome Associate Professor Solomon Harrar to its faculty!
 
Harrar isn't entirely new to the state of Kentucky but he is new to the University of Kentucky. One thing that drew him to UK is the large biomedical presence at the university which fits together well with the research he is already pursuing. Most immediately, Harrar hopes to focus his research work around programs that deal with smoking cessation.

New Faculty 2013: Meet Katherine Thompson

The Department of Statistics is excited to welcome Katherine Thompson to its faculty!
 
While Thompson may be a statistician, her focus on developing statistical methods for biological issues also affords her the opportunity to work with other researchers like those in the Department of Biology. These interdisciplinary bridges that exist at UK are just one example of what drew Thompson to the university and it's her hope that the work she does here only strengthens them further.

Hill's focus at the University of Kentucky will be on creative writing. While she tends to specialize in fiction, Hill has a background that spans the writing spectrum from poetry to play writing.

A Trek Through the Italian Renaissance: Bailey Ubellacker

Studying abroad is considered an unforgettable experience for many of the University of Kentucky’s students. A typical study abroad program transports a group of students to a foreign country. These opportunities offer new perspectives, connections, and fond memories. The Zolondek Scholarship sets itself apart by offering students the opportunity to travel abroad on their own. 

During the summer of 2013, Bailey Ubellacker, a double major of Spanish and Elementary Education, spent three weeks abroad studying and experiencing the Italian Renaissance. Bailey Ubellacker was the recipient of the Zolondek Scholarship, which allowed her to challenge herself as she traveled alone and shaped her own study abroad experience. In this podcast, Bailey Ubellacker discusses her time in Italy and what she has brought back with her.
