The Spencer Barnett Memorial Award Ceremony for Excellence in Latin American and Latino/a Studies

Virtual Web

Open to the public

/ Wednesday


The Spencer Barnett Memorial Prize for Excellence in Latin American and Latino/a Stud- ies is awarded annually to students producing outstanding conference papers or projects dealing with Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies. This year we are able to award three prizes. Across a range of disciplines and in both English and Spanish, the students’ works are a demonstration of the diversity and caliber of and vital interest in Latin Ameri- can Studies at Sarah Lawrence College.

Since 2011, the family of Spencer Barnett has supported and sponsored this prize and cere- mony in memory of their son. The event is open to the entire Sarah Lawrence community.
