Happy New Year, everyone! Today’s the last day of our year-end fundraiser, and we’re highlighting the work of Megan Heise, our 2022 Russell N. Campbell DDG awardee!

Megan Heise (Indiana University of Pennsylvania): “TIRF’s generous funding, through the 2022 Russell N. Campbell DDG Award, enables me to conduct my field research. Without this support, I would not be able to provide the zine-making workshop, cover my transportation and parking expenses in travelling to the workshop, access necessary interpretation and translation services, share the work at conferences, and provide opportunities for participants to disseminate their work on their own terms. In other words, TIRF’s funding has allowed me to access the necessary personnel, transportation, communication, dissemination opportunities, and supplies that are crucial to the success of my project, both for me and for equitable and reciprocal exchange with my participants.

Given the scale of this project and its financial needs, this work would simply not be possible, and not uphold my core principles of equity and reciprocity, without TIRF’s support, for which I remain immensely grateful.”
