Professor receives Fulbright Scholar Grant to work in Guatemala

Roselyn Costantino, associate professor of Spanish and women’s studies, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar Grant to do research in Guatemala and lecture at the Universidad del Valle Guatemala during the spring semester in 2011.

For six months, Costantino will conduct research on nongovernmental women’s organizations that provide leadership training, health care and other services to Maya indigenous women and nonindigenous women in the western highlands of Guatemala. In addition, she will lecture on "Feminist Theory in Latin America" in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at the UVG in Guatemala City. This research forms part of a larger project on violence against women and femicide in Guatemala, topics on which Costantino has lectured and published in the U.S. and internationally.

The Fulbright Program, America’s flagship international educational exchange program, is sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
