Department of Spanish and Portuguese Undergraduate Awarded a Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship to Study Portuguese

Congratulations to Walter DeKock for being awarded a FLAS Fellowship to study Portuguese, the mellifluous and alluring language that the poet Fernando Pessoa famously called his homeland, master raconteur João Guimarães Rosa reinvented, novelist Clarice Lispector stretched to its expressive limits, and Mia Couto reclaimed as "his own" from what were once the edges of empire.
