Greetings from the Frances McClelland Institute, 

This past month has been eventful here at the Institute. We enjoyed the University of Arizona’s Homecoming where Dr. Amy Jean Knorr was honored.  The FCS Council of Alumni and Friends is still fundraising for FMI in Dr. Knorr's honor, and any donation made to the fundraising campaign will be matched by the Norton School Fund.

FMI faculty and students were featured on the Homecoming Panel entitled "It Takes Two: How Relationships Contribute to Development and Well-being." Dr. Melissa Barnett spoke on “Supportive Early Relationships as Foundations for Development.” Dr. Emily Butler spoke on “Love, Anger and Food.” We also acknowledged Family Studies and Human Development doctoral student, Chandni Parikh, for her Frances McClelland Dissertation Award entitled “Eye Tracking Paradigms and Implications for Understanding Developmental Trajectories." If you missed the presentation, you can watch it here.


At the beginning of November, several FMI faculty and graduate students traveled to Minneapolis, Minnesota for the 2016 National Council on Family Relations Annual Conference where they presented their research and attended thought provoking panel discussions. Our faculty and graduate students also hosted a table at the University reception along with several hundred of scholars and students where they worked to recruit new faculty and graduate students for our FSHD program. 


Dr. Christina Diaz from the University of Arizona, School of Sociology presented interesting findings about the good health of Mexican Migrants in our most recent Turbeville Speaker Series. If you were unable to attend the talk, you can watch the presentation below. Our next Turbeville Speaker Series is on Friday, December 2nd, from 1:15p-2:30pm in McClelland Park 402. Dr. Jeremy Fiel from the University of Arizona School of Sociology will be presenting his research entitled “Decomposing the Emergence and Transmission of Multigenerational Educational Inequality."

Lastly, the Frances McClelland Institute and the FSHD department strives to keep social justice and safety at the forefront of our mission. We are sharing the University of Arizona's new resource that allows students and staff to report incidents of discrimination, bias, and harassment on the UA campus. The link for reporting these incidents here.

As always, thank you all for your continuous support of the Institute. Don't forget to follow FMI on Twitter and Facebook for weekly updates about the Institute.

 In Partnership,
 Andrea Romero, Ph.D.
