A team of English department community members received a Michigan Humanities Collaboratory Project Grant for their proposal titled, The Ambivalence Project. The Ambivalence Project hypothesizes that ambivalence could be a productive construct for feminist and anti-racist scholarship and pedagogy, and intends to theorize, historicize, and apply ambivalence to a diverse set of scholarly, pedagogical, and public-facing activities.

Project Team members include (above) Professor of English and Women's Studies Valerie Traub, Professor of English Catherine Sanok, Emglish Graduate Student Annika Pattenaude, along with (right) PhD Candidate in English and Women's & Gender Studies Emily Coccia and English PhD Alumni and Engaged Scholarship Manager for the Edward Ginsberg Center of Community Service and Learning Cecilia Morales.
