I thought you’d like to know that our comadre Profesora Pat Zavella is being honored by our campus for her outstanding research and academic accomplishments. We are very proud of her so I thought I’d share it with our network. Please forward to anyone that may be interested. Abrazos, Aida [Hurtado]
2nd annual UCSC ‘Founders Day’ gala dinner at Cocoanut Grove to honor three exceptional individuals
UC Santa Cruz hosts its second annual Founders Day gala dinner at the Cocoanut Grove on Friday, October 24, beginning at 7 p.m. Launched last year to celebrate the spirit of community that resulted in the founding of a University of California campus in Santa Cruz,the event recognizes and honors extraordinary individuals and their outstanding contributions to society.
This year’s featured honorees will be:
* Dana Priest-UCSC alumna and award-winning reporter for the Washington Post, who earned her second Pulitzer Prize in April for a 2007 exposé of the mistreatment of wounded Iraq war veterans at Walter Reed Medical Center.
* Narinder Singh Kapany-Research scientist, professor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist who is acknowledged by many as the “father of fiber optics.”
* Patricia Zavella-UCSC professor of Latin American and Latino Studies, and one of the world’s leading scholars in the fields of feminist ethnography and Chicana studies.
With a theme of “Fulfilling the Promise,” the evening will include a celebratory dinner, awards presentation ceremony, and video tributes to each of the three recipients.
….Zavella is known for her pioneering research on Chicana/Mexicana social life-including issues of labor, migration, family, gender, feminism, health, sexuality, and popular culture. Her work has been instrumental in setting the Latino research agenda.
Zavella directs UCSC’s Chicano/Latino Research Center and chairs the statewide UC Committee on Latino Research–a multi-campus unit that advises the Office of the President about research related to Latinos in California. Her public service work includes contributions such as helping to organize Binational Health Week in 2001–a collaboration between the state of California and the government of Mexico to improve the health of Mexicans in California.
Zavella has been a leader in national organizations, serving as a member of the Executive Committee of the American Anthropological Association, chair of the Feminist Studies track for the Latin American Studies Association, and as president of the Association of Latina and Latino Anthropologists.Filed under Congratulations! | Comment (0)
