CLA Outstanding Service Award Winner Haven Hawley!
Congratulations to the IHRC's Haven Hawley for being one of the recipients of the College of Liberal Arts Outstanding Service Awards! Every year, the college invites nominations to recognize and reward outstanding service by academic professional and administrative employees. IHRC staff, Director Erika Lee, and former Director Donna Gabaccia collaborated on the nomination and praised Haven's many talents. The major challenge in nominating Haven for this award, Lee says, "was choosing among her many outstanding contributions as IHRC Program Director. She has consistently provided outstanding service, dedication, professionalism, and vision in all of her multiple roles at the IHRC. As such, she exemplifies the very best of our center, the College, and the University." Congratulations to Haven! We could not be more proud!
AMST 8920, "Topics: Transnationalism and U.S. - Mexico Borderlands" will be taught spring 2013 by Yolanda Padilla. This course will track Chicana/o border studies as it evolved in the 1980's and 90's, examine ways in which border studies influenced and shaped the transnational imperatives that are now fundamental to work in American studies, and observe two case studies that indicate the importance of the borderlands for generating transnational approaches in Chicano/a and American Studies.
In 2015, the IHRC will be turning 50, and we're launching a number of initiatives that will highlight our collections and communities. The approaching anniversary is a time for reflection as well as celebration. What has been most significant to you about the IHRC?
