Mercedes Alcalá Galán, Professor of Spanish Literature and Culture and President of the Cervantes Society of America, has received an H.I. Romnes Faculty Fellowship. With this fellowship, the University recognizes her academic success and provides an opportunity for continued development of her outstanding research program. Her most recent book explores the sexual and reproductive bodies of women in Early Modern Spain, while her research has also been oriented toward visual culture in Spain during that epoch.
Please join the Department of Spanish & Portuguese in congratulating Professor Alcalá-Galán on this major campus honor.
