I’m writing you to invite you to our signature Speaker Series, this time a very special edition to present the work of three Andrés Torres Paper Series awardees. These young scholars have been selected nationwide and awarded with $5,000 to write a scholarly manuscript focused on the experience of Latinx in the U.S.

It would be great of you could spread the word with your students, department or anybody you may think could be interested in attending the event because of the topics, but also in learning more about the program to apply for the next call for proposals.
