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
her love for theater. She hopes to develop a career as a
and speech interpreter for a major global organization, such as
United Nations or the European Union.
