Dr. Flores among inaugural class of Mellon Humanities Fellows at Institute for Humanities and Global Cultures

Dr. Flores has been named as a Mellon Humanities Fellow by The Institute of the Humanities and Global Cultures (IHGC). The fellowship supports work on her book manuscript, Guadalupe in the Public Square: Aesthetic Solidarity and the Pursuit of Justice, in which she examines how symbols can potentially inform the imaginative life of citizens toward shared ethical goals in an increasingly pluralistic societal context.
