Spring 2018 Grant Recipient

Graduate Student

Joanne Britland (Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese)

My dissertation focuses on cultural production in the aftermath of the global 2008 social and financial crisis in Spain. With the support from the Center for Global Inquiry and Innovation, I will be able to attend the 2018 Academy of Global Humanities and Critical Theory Summer School in Bologna, Italy. The theme of this year’s course, “The Human in Question,” focuses on social movements and human crises in the twenty-first century. The opportunity to attend the academy will enable me to engage with and learn from innovative researchers making strides in this field of study. The seminars will enhance the theoretical framework in my research and provide me with new critical approaches to examine cultural production and crisis.
