The Department of Spanish & Portuguese Studies would like to congratulate two of our faculty members that received a 2012 Imagine Fund Award. They are, Assistant Professor Ana Forcinito for her project, "Mirrors and Mirages: Human Rights, the Gaze and the Representation of Sex Trafficking," and Professor Carol Klee for her project, "Indigenous Influence in the Personal Narratives of Andean Migrants to Lima, Peru."
The Imagine Fund grant programs support projects in the arts, humanities and design at the University of Minnesota. The programs are supported by a generous grant from the McKnight Foundation, from new internal reallocations from the University of Minnesota Graduate School and the Office of the Vice President for Research, and from the creation of the chairs through the Permanent University Fund.
Following are previous recipients, within our department, that have received Imagine Funds.
