It has been a long hard winter and I wanted to acknowledge the passing of long-time UWM Art Historian and Latin Americanist faculty member Andrea Stone. CLACS was very fortunate to be associated with such a passionate person and we pay tribute to her in the faculty section of this newsletter. The life cycle of passings leads to births and I would like to congratulate Aaron Shoemaker and his wife on the birth of their baby daughter in February. I would also like to thank him for burning the candle at both ends of work and parenthood in order to pull off the wonderful line-up of films for our 36th annual Latin American Film Series. Aaron is graduating this May with his masters degree in pursuit of new challenges and the CLACS family will sorely miss him! Felicitaciones y buena suerte Aaron!!
One last note, as of this writing there is still no request for proposal regarding the application for further Title VI federal funding. Should make for an interesting summer!
As always, we appreciate your collaborative efforts, input and support!
Until next issue…Kris
