UCR Magazine’s Winter 2014 Issue is Here

From UCR's Native American outreach, to a device that can smell toxins in the environment, to a Highlander searching the world, you can find it all on magazine.ucr.edu.

UCR Magazine’s Winter 2014 issue

Did you know that the University of California, Riverside, is in the heart of Indian country, and built on Cahuilla land? Did you know that UCR’s Ph.D. in Native American history is only one of three in the nation? That the Costo Chair of American Indian Affairs is the first faculty chair endowed by American Indians, and that we have a record number of scholars of Native descent in our faculty?

This issue’s cover story “New Voices, New Stories, New Dreams,” talks about all of that and more. It highlights the fact that UCR’s research and student outreach rises above what is done in many other universities in the country. We have a host of online extras; check out our interactive map showcasing the many areas of cultural significance for the Native people, and a first-person account of an alumnus’ research at the Sherman Indian High School.

We talk about other hot topics, too. UCR scientists Norm Ellstrand and Alan McHughen address various misconceptions about genetically modified foods. We herald an invention by UCR Professor Nosang Myung: an electronic nose that might be able to sniff out danger. We showcase the work of an amazing Highlander — Shah Selbe, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer. (Don’t forget to check out a slideshow of his work!)

And as always, we have a ton of other online extras — including a video of UCR in the 1980s — on our website, magazine.ucr.edu.
