Semilla/Seed #5: FCWSRC

En los Estados Unidos, marzo es el mes de la historia de la mujer. Para conmemorar el comienzo del mes, reconozco el apoyo que he recibido del Five College Women’s Studies Research Center (FCWSRC) en Mount Holyoke College en South Hadley, MA en los Estados Unidos. Durante el año académico 2015-2016, era una asociada del centro para el estudio de la mujer y tuve la oportunidad de obtener retroalimentación invaluable de otras asociadas. Durante mi tiempo en FCWSRC, el centro estuvo bajo la dirección de Darcy Buerkle de Smith College en el otoño de 2015, y Banu Subramaniam de la Universidad de Massachusetts en primavera de 2016. La actual directora, Jennifer Hamilton de Hampshire College, que se ve arriba, asistió muchos de los eventos del centro durante ese tiempo.

Al destacar el trabajo de las cooperativas del casabe en Iriona, Honduras se trata de reconocer el valor del trabajo de la mujer. Durante este mes, espero que consideren donar al Proyecto 25 Semillas, así podré volver a imprimir y distribuir los álbumes de fotos que ilustran este importante trabajo tradicional de los pueblos Garifunas. ¡Done hoy!


In the US, March is Women’s History Month. To mark the beginning of the month, I am acknowledging the support that I have received from Five College Women’s Studies Research Center (FCWSRC) at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. During the 2015-2016, I was a research associate at the center, and had the opportunity to get invaluable feedback from other associates. During my time at FCWSRC, the center was under the direction of Darcy Buerkle of Smith College in Fall 2015, and Banu Subramaniam of the University of Massachusetts in Spring 2016. The current director, Jennifer Hamilton of Hampshire College, who is pictured above, attended many of the program events during that time.

Highlighting the work of cassava cooperatives in Iriona, Honduras is about recognizing the value of women’s work. During this month, I hope you will consider donating to the 25 Seeds Project, so I am able to re-print and distribute the photo books that illustrate this important work in the Garifuna community. Donate today!
