Excerpt

Dr. Virginia E. Sánchez Korrol looks forward to receiving The Inter-University Program for Latino Research’s (IUPLR) tribute at Siglo XXI, the IUPLR Fourth Biennial Conference, which will be held from February 22 – February 25, as “a symbol of recognition for work of my colleagues and all those scholars who devote their careers to Latino Studies.”

Of the honor, Sánchez Korrol said, “A recognition of your work by your peers is, perhaps, the highest honor one can ever receive.”

“There is, of course, a feeling of excitement, the WOW factor that someone actually realizes the ways you’ve been attempting to change academia and society through intellectual work,” she said. “But there is also, more importantly, a sense of humility because an award to me is really an award to all of us who have struggled together and worked collectively for more than three decades to bring about knowledge, progress, and change in our communities and in the broader society.”
