UC Merced’s branch of the Blum Center for Developing Economies rebooted this spring with a faculty-led effort to spend two years working on becoming the hub for all food-security-related research and outreach on and off campus.
Part of that effort includes seed grants for UC Merced researchers. The Blum Center just announced this year’s winners:
Manuel Meraz transferred to UC Merced with a mission: to revive what had once been an award-winning, student-led robotics scene on campus.
UC Merced is taking steps to fight hunger and tackle food waste on campus and across Merced County.
Is it still possible to build a better mouse trap? Engineering students at UC Merced think so.
Jocelyne Fadiga and Havilliah “Jake” Malsbury traveled from different worlds to study at UC Merced.
The works of Shakespeare, perhaps more so than any in the western canon, have been subject to reinterpretation and reappraisal by generations of artists, scholars and laypeople.
Some, like Verdi’s opera “Otello,” are considered masterpieces in their own right. Others, most notably Thomas Bowdler’s much maligned, puritanical expurgation of Shakespeare’s works, have been roundly scorned and derided.
