"A mother's vision includes tough nurturance, survival love, a demanding state of grace. It is a vision slowly forming from the body of work created by women. I imagine a wide and encompassing room filled with women lost in concentration. They are absorbed in the creation of an emotional tapestry, an intellectual quilt."  Louise Erdrich, The Blue Jay's Dance
Travel fellowships for Duke's Feminist Theory Workshop
The Gender Institute and the UB Academies congratulate our spring 2016 scholarship winner, Cathleen Alarcon, a junior in Romance Languages and Literatures whose project involves translating the play, Casi Transilvania (2014), by Mexican playwright, Bárbara Colio, from Spanish to English. Supervised by RLL Professor Margarita Vargas, an accomplished translator, Cathleen received permission from Colio, the playwright, to work on the translation. 
Cathleen's project unites her passion for Spanish literature with
her love for theater. She hopes to develop a career as a translator
and speech interpreter for a major global organization, such as the
United Nations or the European Union.
