Website: Tracing the Movement of Populations in Latin America
Fellowship: Project Proposal | Project Presentation
About the Project
The project entails planning and creating 2 exhibits in the Central lobby relating to population movements in (1) North America and (2) Latin America and the Caribbean based primarily on our special collections. The Latin American component will be integrated into the research methods course taught by Covington and Robinson (History). Schultz will collaborate with available history faculty.
Dora Saclarides worked with librarian Paula Covington to curate an exhibition on Colombian documents for a global conference and worked with student curators in LAS 4901/5901 to help them curate the exhibition, “Tracing the Movement of Populations in Latin America.” She presented on her work to library staff and at the reception opening.
About the Fellow
Dora Saclarides is from Northfield, Illinois, and attended Vanderbilt University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American Studies and is currently a candidate in the 4+1 master's program at the Center for Latin American Studies. Her passion for languages led to her participation in the Fulbright U.S. Student Program during the 2016 academic year, where she worked as an English Teaching Assistant at the Federal University of Paraíba in João Pessoa and the Federal University of Campina Grande. She has an ongoing interest in inter-American literature and the sociology of literary translation. For her thesis, she is researching the proliferation of translated texts about Eastern Orthodox Christianity in the United States and Brazil and will examine how translated texts have contributed to the formation of "American" and “Brazilian” Orthodox identities in an eastern tradition. Dora worked with librarian Paula Covington to curate an exhibition on Colombian documents for a global conference and worked with student curators in LAS 4901/5901 to help them curate the exhibition, “Tracing the Movement of Populations in Latin America.”
