Dr. Kimberly Gauderman, Associate Professor of Latin American History, has been awarded the 2017-2018 Snead-Wertheim Endowed Lectureship in Anthropology and History for her project, "There’s a Group for that’: Asylum History, Research, and Testimony.” Dr. Gauderman’s research for this lectureship will connect her expertise in Latin American history with her experience as an expert witness in over 60 Latin American asylum cases in a lecture that explores the tension between corporate and individual identities in the framing of citizenship and human rights. The Snead-Wertheim Lectureship is awarded on the basis of distinguished or meritorious research and/or teaching and has been awarded annually since 1989-90 to a full-time, tenure-track faculty member alternately in the Departments of History and Anthropology at the University of New Mexico.  Dr. Gauderman will deliver a public lecture on her research in September, 2018.
