Melissa Schieble Awarded Spencer Foundation Grant

Melissa Schieble (Curriculum and Teaching) was awarded a Spencer Foundation Small grant for the project, “Exploring ‘local backup’ for schools targeted by the anti-CRT ‘Conflict Campaigns.'” She is Co-PI on the project with colleagues Aris Moreno Clemons (UT-Knoxville), Michiko Hikida (Ohio State University), Laura Taylor (Rhodes College) and Amy Vetter (UNC-Greensboro). Their research will explore the language and discourse practices that sustain a school’s commitments to equity and anti-racism in the current polarized sociopolitical context.
