GWSS professor Lina-Maria Murillo has received the UCSB Kenneth Karmiole Endowed Research Fellowship to do archival research in the UCSB library this summer. This will support her new book project, "Borderlands of Abortion Care." 

The Kenneth Karmiole Endowed Research Fellowship program enables scholars and graduate students to pursue research lasting from one to three months in UCSB Library’s Special Research Collections. One annual fellowship will be awarded in the amount of $5,000 to allow a scholar to pursue research in the humanities, sciences, social sciences, visual and performing arts, and/or UCSB history. Collections available for fellowship-supported research include rare books, journals, manuscripts, archives, printed ephemera, photographs and other audiovisual materials, maps, recordings, and other items. The award is funded by an endowment established by Kenneth Karmiole, an internationally-renowned antiquarian bookseller who earned his bachelor's degree in History from UCSB.
