Stacy L. Kamehiro (Associate Professor, History of Art and Visual Culture) received funding from the prestigious National Endowment for Humanities (NEH) to support her work on Objects of the Nation: Hawai’i at the World’s Fairs, 1855–1899. Her research and writing reflect how representation at the world’s fair reflected indigenous sovereignty and Hawiian nationhood.

“This very competitive and prestigious award from the NEH recognizes the outstanding work of Professor Kamehiro regarding indigenous cultures, particularly  Hawaiian visual and material culture,” said Celine Parreñas Shimizu, Dean of the Arts Division and Distinguished Professor of Film and Media at UC Santa Cruz. “The entire Arts Division community celebrates this great honor."
