Dr. Kelly received $100,000 from the US Forest Service to support the work, which started with documenting known large-scale, cross-boundary fire restoration projects, then choosing case studies across Oregon and Washington. Jodie Pixley, a student in the HSU Environment and Community Master’s program, spent her summer in the Klamath Basin and Ashland, Oregon, working on two case studies.

The disctinction will be awarded annually to the RMA member publishing the most significant research work in the previous two years. The RMA is composed of a group of scientists involved in resource management, environmental science, ecology, natural resources, statistics, and mathematics.
Rollie was the founder and first president of the RMA. At HSU he also coordinated the Environmental Systems program.
Faculty Leena Dallasheh, History Permalink
History Assistant Professor Leena Dallasheh had her article “Troubled Waters: Citizenship and Colonial Zionism in Nazareth” published in the International Journal of Middle East Studies. Focused on the contest over water management in Nazareth during early Israeli statehood (1948–56), it traces the negotiations between the city’s Palestinian residents and the Israeli state. A microcosm of Palestinians’ incorporation as undesired and marginalized citizens into a self-defined Jewish state, it shows how the struggle over a vital natural resource, where it is in short supply, was both a matter of fulfilling practical needs and a part of negotiating citizenship.
