"Memory is like the blood of time, and we are seeking the DNA
of broken dreams, of lost Memory; blocked, silenced, exiled."
—Viviana Ponieman, visual artist, writing about the memory of the disappeared in Argentina.

We would like to extend our warm congratulations to two of our department’s undergraduate students who were awarded the Selmer Birkelo Scholarship for 2009-2010. These students are Chelsey Rosetter (Spanish Studies major) and Elizabeth Troolin (Spanish Studies and Political Science double major). They were two of only fourteen students in CLA to receive this award! !Enhorabuena!
