GMC Faculty Is Awarded NEH Humanities Connections Fellowship to Develop Undergraduate Spanish Curriculum in Immigration Law

GMC Deputy Director Robert McKee Irwin and Faculty Affiliate Emily Vázquez, both of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, in collaboration with Affiliates Raquel Aldana and Leticia Saucedo of UCD Law School, have been awarded a Humanities Connections Planning Grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities in order to prepare bilingual students for careers in immigration law – including those aspiring to law school, as well as those who aim to work in civil organizations that serve Spanish speaking immigrant communities – by developing a series of upper division courses in Spanish that incorporate significant content on immigration law.
