I have received a prestigious 2017 Goizueta Foundation Graduate Fellowship with the Cuban Heritage Collection (CHC) at the University of Miami. The fellowship will fund a month of my dissertation research in the CHC’s archives, beginning in mid-August 2017. I am one of six scholars selected from across the country to receive this fellowship, among them graduate students from universities such as Yale, Rutgers, and the University of Southern California.
These fellowships give emerging scholars an opportunity to engage with CHC materials. We fellows will draw upon these materials in our scholarly contributions to Cuban, American, Latin@, hemispheric, and international studies. The Cuban Heritage Collection “collects, preserves, and provides access to primary and secondary sources of enduring historical, research, and artifactual value which relate to Cuba and the Cuban diaspora from colonial times to the present.” Read more about the CHC and its history.
