Democracy Now!, an independent global news source, has shared their recent interview with Dr. Andra Chastain. Assistant Professor Chastain spoke on the history of the Chilean transit system and the civil unrest that we’ve seen continue to escalate in Chile.
Dr. Sue Peabody has been selected as a fellow to the Camargo Foundation residential program in Cassis, France, beginning this fall. She will be working on her sabbatical project, a new book entitled “The Failure of the Succès: Anatomy of a Slave Smuggling Voyage.”
Congratulations Dr. Peabody and enjoy your time away!
