El Instituto Associate Director Recognized in UConn ECE Magazine

Anne GebeleinThe Summer 2021 edition of UCONN ECE Magazine featured a story on the work of Associate Director and Associate Professor Anne Gebelein in supporting Early College Experience classes in Latin American Studies in high schools around the state. The article focused specifically on Gebelein’s lectures on cyclical violence in Central America, human rights at the US/Mexico border, and Latino and Puerto Rican activism and social organizing. Special attention was given to her lectures on mass deportation of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans in mid-twentieth-century United States. Even as ECE is just one of the educator outreach and community engagement activities that are a special signature of her work as El Instituto’s Associate Director, Gebelein remarked “I feel privileged to be able to be inside the classroom of so many talented instructors.”
