The Evolving Definitions of Femicide: Cristina Alcalde

Earlier this year, the Catholic University of Peru selected Associate Professor Cristina Alcalde of the Department of Gender & Women's Studies to be one of six international visiting professors and scholars.
 
Alcalde spent her time at the university teaching a graduate seminar on femicide and violence against women. This opportunity to travel and teach abroad allowed Alcalde to investigate new areas of research and explore international experiences separate from those in America. 
 
In this podcast, Alcalde discusses her trip, issues and research around femicide, and how American understandings of femicide contrast with those internationally.

A Trek Through the Italian Renaissance: Bailey Ubellacker

Studying abroad is considered an unforgettable experience for many of the University of Kentucky’s students. A typical study abroad program transports a group of students to a foreign country. These opportunities offer new perspectives, connections, and fond memories. The Zolondek Scholarship sets itself apart by offering students the opportunity to travel abroad on their own. 

During the summer of 2013, Bailey Ubellacker, a double major of Spanish and Elementary Education, spent three weeks abroad studying and experiencing the Italian Renaissance. Bailey Ubellacker was the recipient of the Zolondek Scholarship, which allowed her to challenge herself as she traveled alone and shaped her own study abroad experience. In this podcast, Bailey Ubellacker discusses her time in Italy and what she has brought back with her.
