August 1, 2012 · Leave a Comment

Hello! Just a brief event announcement for the moment. Tomorrow, according to the library’s event e-mail I just received, Peter Wien, a Kluge Fellow at the Library of Congress, will be speaking on “Al-Andalus, or Muslim Spain, and its role as nationalist symbol for Arab-Muslim civilization throughout the 20th century.” More info is here.

And if you are interested in becoming a Kluge Fellow (or just want to know more about the program), here is that information. I can’t make it to the talk, but I’m sure it will be fascinating.

Fernando Henrique Cardoso wins award from the Library of Congress

May 15, 2012 · Leave a Comment

Former president of Brazil Fernando Henrique Cardoso has just won the Kluge Prize for the Study of Humanity from the Library of Congress. There will be a ceremony on July 10 at the Jefferson Building. More details here.

I took a tour of the Hispanic Reading Room and the library’s other area studies reading rooms not too long ago, and learned a great deal about the Kluge Center in the process. A friend of mine was a fellow there in 2008, and he said it was one of the best academic experiences he has ever had. More information about the Center and its various programs is here.
