Boise State University

Ravi M. Gupta’s college experience was unlike most — he started his first year at age 12. While simultaneously tackling bachelor degree programs in philosophy and applied mathematics at Boise State University, fueled by devoted faculty, Gupta also discovered a passion for the humanities, philosophy, languages and religious studies.

“My experience at Boise State was one of the most powerful influences in shaping my future career,” he said. “It was that transformative experience that led me to ultimately decide to work at a state university myself, because I know the impact that it has in students’ lives.”

As an undergraduate student, Gupta learned Sanskrit from local linguist, Gary Thomas. He then translated an early 18th century text that blossomed into an honors thesis, with assistance from retired history professor Peter Buhler, as well as Harvard graduate Howard Resnick. The article, titled “A Pearl Necklace of Propositions: Baladeva Vidyabhusana’s Prameya Ratnavali,” is now one of many journal articles that Gupta has written, along with four published books.

“The relationships I had with my professors were extraordinary,” Gupta said. “The fact that so many of them would take time in their office hours or just walking across campus to continue the discussion from class, exploring different areas and giving me a vision for the future.”

Gupta graduated from Boise State in 1999 and was admitted to the University of Oxford where he completed a master’s in religious studies and a doctor of philosophy in Hinduism.

We have some pretty amazing students learning about some pretty amazing things! Thank you, Dr. Wenner for offering such an impactful and insightful course.

Throughout history, people have used craftivism, craft and needlework as a form of activism, to voice resistance, raise awareness or fill a need that typically goes unfilled.

A group of 25 Boise State students – 20 women and five men with a mix of majors, from business to education – have spent the past semester exploring the history of craftivism in professor Julianne Wenner’s BSU Service-Learning, Boise State Honors College colloquium, "Stitches of Resistance."

Wenner led “Skills Labs” throughout the course so students could learn basic needlework skills. They learned to use sewing machines with help from the MakerLab in the Boise State College of Innovation + Design. “Three fourths of the students had never lifted a needle,” said Wenner.

Assignments during the semester included embroidering positive messages to leave around town for people to find, and creating a square for a class quilt.
The squares, quilted by Wenner, became a quilt for Project Linus, a national nonprofit with a local chapter that gives handmade blankets to kids in need.

For their final projects, presented in class Dec. 4, students devised a local craftivism project focused on a cause of their choice. Causes ranged from the environment, to animal welfare, to food insecurity and others.
