Congratulations Caroline Baicy for her Fulbright-Hays Award!
Caroline Baicy completed all required coursework and will now focus on a dissertation in the Department of History. Baicy will analyze how metropolitan spaces, predominantly in North America and Europe, exhibited cultures from the Cordillera mountain range in the island of Luzon in the Philippines. Baicy’s eight-month research trip to Spain and the Philippines will begin in February 2023. Associate Professor Vina Lanzona is Baicy’s advisor and dissertation committee chair.
“Through my research and time spent in archives in Spain and the Philippines, I hope to gain an understanding of how these exhibitions developed through the various perspectives including the performers, Filipinos who are not from the region, colonial administrators, and people who experienced these expositions at the turn of the century,” Baicy said.
