The English Department is proud to announce graduate student Alexandra Lossada has been named one of this year’s Gender and Racial Justice Scholars.  The award is designed to support student research studying structural inequalities related to gender and race to help us understand our history and promote democracy, inclusion, and empowerment.  As part of the award, Alexandra will  participate in three research roundtables and participate in the March 2022 Gender and Racial Justice Scholars Colloquium. Alexandra’s dissertation concerns the criminalization of immigration law within late 20th-/early 21st-century American ethnic literature; she explores the effects of that criminalization on ad hoc interpreters and how this group, in turn, re-imagines language and the interpretive act better to counter its violence.
