Humanities Institute fellowship

Congratulations to our graduate student Gabriel Rudas Burgos on winning the summer fellowship from the Humanities Institute at Stony Brook to attend The School of Criticism and Theory at Cornell University (2017)  Only one of these very competitive fellowships are awarded each year and for the last two editions they have gone to students in our department. José (Benny) Chueca won it for summer 2016.
