Chris Patterson Receives Killam Research Fellowship

Congratulations to Dr. Chris Patterson on his recent Killam Research Fellowship.

The Killam Research Fellowships provide support to scholars of exceptional ability by granting them time to pursue research projects of broad significance and widespread interest within the disciplines of the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering or studies linking any of these disciplines. These Fellowships are now specifically targeted to mid-career researchers in need of relief from teaching and administrative duties to focus on their research career.

“I'm energized by this important recognition of my research on histories of colonial violence, and how they transform in ways that de-mobilize solidarity movements today. I accept this funding as a boost to my own praxis of critical race research and creative writing practices wherever they lead.”

UBC’s Faculty Research Awards recognize the research excellence and scholarly achievements of faculty from across all disciplines, ranging from the applied sciences and medicine to the social sciences and humanities. Award recipients are selected by UBC’s Faculty Research Awards Committee and include early career researchers through to established members of faculty.
