Congratulations to Katherine Ball for receiving the 2014-2015 Fulbright U.S. Student Award to Denmark! 

"Katherine Ball is a habitat for fungi and bacteria located on planet Earth. Just as waves move an ocean, our collective movements swirl with experiments in alternatives to the dominant discourse, which have included: bicycling across the US to interview Americans working on small-scale solutions to the climate crisis, coordinating a national day of action to halt business at banks and corporations unduly influencing state laws, living in an off-grid floating island building mushroom filters to clean a polluted lake, and studying the behaviors of various species acting as the ecological counterpart to civil disobedience. An amateur in the best sense of the word originally from Detroit, Michigan, Katherine strives to give more energy to our dreams than our fears."
