Barbara Galindo, currently an Assistant Adjunct Professor and Faculty Fellow in our department, has received a two-year (2022-2024) postdoctoral fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). According to the ACLS web-site, “the ACLS Emerging Voices Fellowship Program supports early-career scholars in the humanities and interpretive social sciences facing a challenging academic job market by enabling them to take up positions with members of the ACLS Research University Consortium. The program supports a vanguard of scholars whose voices, perspectives, and broad visions will strengthen institutions of higher education and humanistic disciplines in the years to come.” Dr. Galindo will be appointed as a postdoctoral fellow in Race, Ethnicity and Indigeneity with the Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. Her appointment will also involve teaching one course per year in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. Barbara received her Ph.D. from our department in 2021 with a dissertation titled “Vidas huérfanas, ciudades torturadas y derechos humanos ecosociales: Representaciones culturales del terror minero en los Andes.” Congratulations to Barbara and to her dissertation director, Professor Adriana Bergero!
