Dr. Linda Heidenreich, received tenure and promotion to Associate Professor of Women’s Studies, Washington State University, Pullman in Spring, 2006. Linda is cranking out publications as well: she has an essay in the forthcoming 6:1 fall issue of Chicana/Latina Studies, titled “Learning from the Death of Gwen Araujo?: Transphobic Racial Subordination and Queer Latina Survival in the Twenty-first Century.” She also has a book in the works titled History and Forgetfulness in an American County for the Chicana Matters Series (UT Press).
Members will receive the fall issue of Chicana/Latina Studies soon. If you haven’t paid up your membership, go here now to download and mail in the membership form. Membership fees are sliding scale, and in the words of Dra. Sandra Torres, the “best deal around in professional associations!”
Finally, kudos to Dr. Rocio Delgado, Assistant Professor of Education at Trinity University in San Antonio, TX who has finished her UT Austin dissertation (title?). She is beginning her second year at Trinity University.
Trinity is also fortunate to have recent hires Rosana Blanco-Cano (Ph.D. Tulane University) and Debra Ochoa (Ph.D. University of Texas at Austin), joining the Department of Modern Languages. Rosana researches Spanish-American literature and culture, and Debra works on twentieth century Spanish Peninsular Literature/Film and Spanish Women Writers.
Best wishes to all these MALCSistas!
