Cecilia Enjuto Rangel, Associate Professor of Spanish in the Romance Languages department, has been awarded Excellence Award for Outstanding Mentorship in Graduate Studies this year.
Enjuto Rangel consistently supports not only her advisees, but all Romance Languages and Comparative Literature students by putting important scholarship, grant, and internship opportunties within reach. Additionally, Enjuto Rangel has provided unique mentorship opportunities by bringing academic and artistic events to campus that keep graduate students up-to-date on scholarly advances and to meet influential academics and artists in the field.
A common theme in Enjuto Rangel’s nominations was her generosity with her time. “We want to emphsize that Prof. Enjuto Rangel has markedly influenced our graduate study experience by giving a very precious and scarce gift among professors: time,” her nomination wrote.
Pedro García-Caro interviewed by University of Puerto Rico radio on his translation of Wallace Shawn’s The Fever
Prof. García-Caro was interviewed last January for the cultural radio program 123 Probando by actress and director Rosa Luisa Márquez and artist Antonio Martorell. Here are the two links (first part, second part) to listen online to the hour-long interview. The Fever / La fiebre is a critical bilingual flip book edition of Wallace Shawn’s 1991 monologue, co-translated into Spanish by García-Caro and Argentinean playwright Rafael Spregelburd. Here is an excerpt from García-Caro’s Introduction:
“The Fever seeks to subvert the complacent conscience of the globalized traveling Westerner/American sitting in the audience through a long-established process of empathy and identification, which is, however, devoid of either classical catharsis or a consensus-building, feel-good resolution. Instead, The Fever is an essay-monologue which seeks to contaminate the reader-spectator with that exotic ethical fever the traveler has picked up in a foreign country. As such, it is an infectious text, reader beware.”
