The Cesar Chavez Dissertation Fellowship supports one graduate student each year for a residency at Dartmouth. This year, the fellowship went to Robb Hernandez, a PhD candidate in American Studies at The University of Maryland, College Park.
He describes his dissertation, titled “Archival Body/Archival Space: Queer Remains of the Chicano Art Movement” as “foundationally about loss and recovery, the critical role of homosexuality in the Chicano Art Movement, and the cultural arm of the Civil Rights struggle in east Los Angeles in the 1960’s.”
