Dichas mesas podrían tener participantes que disertaran sobre la crítica producida por mujeres desde Cuba sobre la obra de Avellaneda, así como también sobre la influencia de Avellaneda en las obras de crítica literaria y cultural producida por estudiosas en Cuba.

Reciban un cordial saludo y espero atentamente sus propuestas y sugerencias,

WGSS is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty and student body. The University of Massachusetts is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. The University seeks to increase the diversity of its professoriate, workforce and undergraduate and graduate student populations because broad diversity is critical to achieving the University’s mission of excellence in education, research, educational access, and service in an increasingly diverse globalized society. Therefore, in holistically assessing many qualifications of each applicant of any race or gender we would factor favorably an individual's record with students and colleagues with broadly diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds in educational, research or other work activities. Among other qualifications, we would also factor favorably experience overcoming or helping others overcome barriers to an academic career or degree.
