Many congratulations to staff in Iberian and Latin American Studies, who as a teaching team received a Faculty Learning and Teaching Award this month. The award recognized IBLAS’s applied awareness of the diversity and plurality of the geo-political spaces that staff research, which manifests itself notably in the week-long series of events and activities that make up Iberian and Latin American Week. As reported on the MLC blog, IBLAW brings a taster of IBLAS’s shared knowledge and interest in the Hispanic and Lusophone world every year to students, through events that take place at the university and around the city, bringing students in contact with a range of practitioners, creative producers, and their texts, films, books, and music.
Iberian and Latin American Week enriches the curriculum and draws an audience from within the student body, across the University, and around the city. It raises the profile of IBLAS and enhances the student experience, as demonstrated in consistently high student feedback. Thanks to all guests and collaborators who contributed to Iberian and Latin American Week, and many congratulations to staff in IBLAS for this well-deserved award!
