CRRES Visiting Scholar Dr. Tina Irvine has accepted a tenure-track position in Purdue University's History department. In addition to holding a CRRES Visiting Scholar position, Irvine has been a 2022 American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Fellow at Indiana University Bloomington. Her current research focuses on the Americanization movement taking place in early twentieth century Appalachia, in which eugenicists, white supremacists, public health officials, and educators contributed to the construction of "mountain whites" as a group seen not as pure-blooded Anglo-Saxons, but degenerates in need of reform. We look forward to keeping up with this research as she continues her work at Purdue.
Congratulations, Dr. Irvine!
