BYU anthropology funded for book on Native American rock art

The Brigham Young University anthropology department recently received a $1,500 grant from the Utah Preservation Initiatives Fund of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The funds will be used to help publish "New Dimensions in Rock Art Studies," a publication outlining new discoveries and interpretations of Native American rock art, mainly on the Colorado plateau.

The book will be distributed by the University of Utah press and is scheduled to be ready by spring 2004.

"With these start-up dollars, Provo joins the hundreds of other communities across the country actively ensuring that America's architectural and cultural heritage is preserved," said Richard Moe, National Trust president.

The Utah Preservation Initiatives Fund administers the National Trust's program for awarding grants for local projects. Grants range from $500 to $10,000 and must be matched dollar for dollar with public or private funds. They are awarded to nonprofit groups and public agencies.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is a nonprofit membership organization chartered by Congress to encourage public participation in all aspects of historic preservation.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
