Isabel Wu, Ph.D. candidate from the History Department, will present her experience researching the history of the Paula magazine during the dictatorship in Santiago, Chile from Sept. 2023 to Jan, 2024. Her research experience in Chile is nothing short of adventure. The Chinese saying “Bad luck. Good luck. Who really knows?” perfectly encapsulates her journey. She will talk about how the initial setback of her research had turned out to be a fortune that led her to major discoveries, renewed perspectives, and significant relationships with the community she based her research in.
A light lunch will be provided.
