Society of Scholars
The Society of Scholars is an intellectual community of humanists of diverse generations, academic ranks, and departmental affiliations who contribute to and learn from one another’s work. Each year, approximately eight faculty and three dissertation research fellowships support members of the Society of Scholars. Scholars in year-long residence at the University of Washington may be invited to participate as well. The group meets biweekly throughout the year to discuss their research in progress.

Beat Migration: Sounds of Cultural Citizenship
Beat Migration intervenes in nativist discourses that question the national belonging of Latinos. It offers the first comprehensive study of Latino cultural citizenship embedded in the potent site of popular music. As a transmedia project that migrates from traditional text-based research, to museum exhibit, to digital platform, and returns to text-based scholarship, the book provides a model for contemplating how the content of research relates to the form of its dissemination.
