Visiting Scholars and Artists from Puerto Rico (VISAPUR) Lunch & Learn
Join us for a Lunch & Learn to welcome our Visiting Scholars and Artists from Puerto Rico who will be in residence at the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS) this summer as part of the VISAPUR program. The VISAPUR program continues to provide relief to scholars, students, and artists affected by the catastrophic aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria by allowing them to continue their work at Princeton on a temporary basis. VISAPUR support includes a stipend to cover living expenses, office space, access to libraries and other scholarly material, and an opportunity to engage with colleagues at Princeton. Find out more about the program's initiative.
During this lunch, we will welcome the first six visitors:
Each visiting fellow or student will talk briefly (approximately 5-10 minutes each) about the project they will be working on while at Princeton.
RSVP here by Wednesday, June 26.
Lunch will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
This initiative is endorsed by the Princeton Task Force on Puerto Rico, while PLAS manages the program with co-sponsorship from the Office of the Provost. Additional support has been provided by, the Firestone Library, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Office of the Dean of the Faculty, Office of the Dean of the College, Graduate School, Office of the Registrar, and Housing and Real Estate Services. Special thanks to professor emeritus Arcadio Díaz Quiñones, former PLAS director and professor of Spanish and Portuguese, for his leadership and commitment to the project.
