We’re happy to announce that we have a new contributor to our blog. Katiana is going to focus on blogs related to our Puerto Rico content, which we plan to release periodically. Without further ado, we’ll let Katiana introduce herself!
My name is Katiana Bagué and I am a Puerto Rican-American, currently in Florida. I recently attained my B.A in Art History from University of Florida in May 2018. I have been working at the George A. Smathers Latin American and Caribbean Collection (LACC) since June 2016, and as of October 2017, I was awarded the ARL Fellowship for Digital and Inclusive Excellence. Through the fellowship, I have been able to develop online exhibits for LACC. I was fortunate enough to help transform the physical exhibit of The Cuban American Dream into an online timeline, and curate The Expression and Legacy of Landownership in Mexico. I am excited to be a part of this project and share some guest posts related to topics found in historical Puerto Rican newspapers. I’m new to twitter, but my handle is @katiana_mb.
