As a result of research conducted last summer as part of a Fund for Innovative Teaching and Learning (FITL) Research Internship, an article co-written by Professor Sandlin and senior IGS (Hispanic World) major Rachel Combs will appear in a forthcoming issue of the peer reviewed journal, Monographic Review. Their essay is titled "Fashioning the Self: Gender, Spectacle, and Glamour in Sirena Selena vestida de pena by Mayra Santos Febres." Rachel's interest in this Puerto Rican novel from 2001 began in Professor Sandlin's seminar on Women Authors of the Hispanic Caribbean.
The FITL research internships support student-faculty teams in collaborative or mentored scholarly research projects. Internships take place on the Sewanee campus. Established by a foundation that wishes to remain anonymous (aided by a bridge grant from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund).
