We also wish to recognize the efforts of Professors Carvalho, Larson, Rueda, Santí and Suárez in obtaining UK funds to help cover expenses related to the public lectures and events organized and sponsored or co-sponsored by the Department of Hispanic Studies. These initiatives allowed us to bring to UK campus cultural studies critic Steven Marsh, Latin Americanist Rafael Ocasio, Mexican novelist Ricardo Chávez Castañeda, Colombian film maker and poet Víctor Gaviria, Argentinian poet and human rights activist Alicia Partnoy, ethnomusicologist and performer of Sephardic music Judith Cohen, Romance Linguistics specialist Elmar Eggert, and Professor Kevin Yelvington, an authority on the subject of race and diaspora in the Caribbean area. We appreciate all the internal support that we received and were happy to cosponsor some of these events.
