Tia Cody and Charlotte Helmer were awarded the fellowships in 2018 for thoughtful inquiry of Oregon’s heritage. In April, the Fellows, along with the Oregon Women’s History Consortium Junior Fellow, presented their research at the Oregon Heritage Conference session titled, “Oregon Students Researching Oregon.”  Conference attendees had more questions for the students than time allowed. All three papers are now available for further reading. Please follow the links below to learn more!

Tia Cody, an Oregon Heritage Fellow and a graduate student in Archaeology at Portland State, completed a project titled, “LiDAR Predictive Modeling of Kalapuya Mound Sites in the Calapooia Watershed, Oregon.”

Charlotte Helmer, an Oregon Heritage Fellow and a graduate student in Historic Preservation at the University of Oregon, completed a project titled, “Wild Notions: Preserve and Protect Historic Resources in Oregon Wilderness.”

Jenna Barganski, the 2017 Oregon Women History Consortium’s Junior Fellow and graduate student in History at Portland State University completed research titled, “Giving the Noose the Slip: An Analysis of Female Murders in Oregon, 1850-1950.”

More information about the Oregon Heritage Fellowship is available on the Oregon Heritage website. The 2019 applications and guideline will be posted in August.
