CHC Graduate Fellows Colloquium on Tuesday, September 7th

Join us in the Otto G. Richter 3rd Floor Conference Room at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 7th when Sharada Balachandran Orihuela and Bonnie Lucero present and discuss their work as 2010 CHC Graduate Fellows. Sharada Balachandran Orihuela (University of California, Davis) is conducting research on "From Flags to Freeways: Hemispheric Routes of Exchange and Nation-formation in Cuba, Mexico and the U.S.;" and Bonnie Lucero (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) is writing about "Post-colonial Peculiarities: Cultural Reflections of Race and Gender on the Road to Cuban Independence." Sharada Balachandran Orihuela and Bonnie Lucero are recipients of CHC Graduate Fellowships in the Research and the Pre-Prospectus category, respectively.

The Cuban Heritage Collection Graduate Fellowships provide assistance to graduate students who wish to use the research resources available in the Cuban Heritage Collection at the University of Miami. The goal of these Fellowships is to engage emerging scholars with the materials available in the Cuban Heritage Collection and thus contribute to the larger body of scholarship in Cuban, hemispheric, and international studies. The 2010 CHC Graduate Fellowships are generously funded by The Goizueta Foundation. Learn more »
