Student Spotlight

CLACS Ph.D. Minor Student Andrés López: Andrés López is a second year Ph.D. student in the department of Theatre, Drama, & Contemporary Dance. His interests include cultural hybridity, specifically the intersection of Latino/a and 'American' cultures in the United States and how this intersection manifests itself in the plays of Latino/a playwrights. Andrés would like to bring more recognition to these playwrights as well as teach about cultural hybridity at the university level. He also wants to travel to Cuba now that there are fewer travel restrictions.
