Kathryn Mara Named Kohler Fellow @WID

Ph.D student Kathryn Mara was selected to participate in the Marie Christine Kohler Fellows @ WID. Fellows are expected to spend time at the institute and to develop and maintain mechanisms for ensuring meaningful intellectual discussions with one another (e.g., through scheduled, weekly meetings) and with other students, fellows and faculty in WID. A major responsibility of fellows is to arrange activities (e.g., seminars, exhibitions, performances) for the campus community. Learn more about this unique opportunity!

The Kohler Fellows Program is supported by the Kohler Foundation and the UW–Madison Graduate School.

Kathryn Mara's dissertation is titled, “Memory Abroad: Narrative and Discursive Practices Surrounding the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi,” and her minor is Trauma and Memory Studies.
