Knowledge Families (formerly Research Families) reflects an intergenerational approach to cohort-building. Each Knowledge Family opportunity is designed to connect undergraduate students with faculty mentors who are engaged in AIIS humanities research. Additionally, through a two-week summer program, students will be introduced to Indigenous research methodologies; have access to workshops on conducting archival, ethnographic, and field work; and develop an independent research project. Subsequent to the completion of the course, students will present their independent research projects at the UW Undergraduate Summer Research Symposium, organized by the Office of Undergraduate Research.
