Summer funding for graduate students is all too rare. For that reason, with the support of the Dean of Humanities, Arts,


and Cultural Studies, the Humanities Institute was especially pleased to be able to set aside additional funding in 2011-2012 to support graduate student research and travel. Projects ranged widely from an aesthetic and feminist history of yoga in Amer- ica to an examination of the ideological and political dimen- sions of Molière’s plays. The students, and their projects, are listed below.
