The Department of Spanish & Portuguese is pleased to announce the release of our 2020-2021 annual newsletter (.pdf)! From undergraduates taking their first ever steps into learning Spanish or Portuguese, to many of our outstanding GTAs and lecturers earning their Doctorate, it has been a year of incredible academic success. Our faculty and GTAs have hosted a variety of successful presentations and conferences via Zoom, whose accessible format allowed their research to be broadcast to audiences that tuned in from across the nation and even the world. The achievements of our students and faculty throughout this time of unique challenges not only demonstrate their ability to adapt, but truly highlight the talent and passion that powers this department – and it would not be possible without the support of our alumni and donors that continue to help us provide students with the best opportunities to learn about the Spanish and Portuguese languages and their related cultures. This newsletter will showcase some of the activities and accomplishments of our department over the past academic year, and we look forward to another great year as the Fall 2021 semester continues.
