"A Visual History of Latino Students at the University of Kentucky, 1865-2019" cebe242 Thu, 08/29/2019 - 12:24 pm

A photography exhibit titled “A Visual History of Latino Students at the University of Kentucky, 1865-2019” will be on display at WT Young Library at the University of Kentucky this fall. Curated by University of Kentucky undergraduate student Daniela Gamez Salgado, this collection of archival and contemporary photography presents visual evidence of important firsts in the history of Latino students at the university.  The photos chosen for this exhibit focus on individual student experiences and collective student action, while also celebrating the diversity of experiences and identities encompassed by students of Latin American descent at the university. Commenting on the exhibit, curator Daniela Gamez Salgado states: “As the first official collection of the history of Latino students at the University of Kentucky, this exhibit helps us better understand and analyze the changing needs of this historically underserved community and encourages us all to rethink what it means to be a Wildcat.”

The exhibit will be located in the Rose Street entrance to the WT Young Library and can be viewed during regular library hours between September 16th and November 1st, 2019. An online image gallery from the exhibit can be viewed at https://uknowledge.uky.edu/latino_student_history/

In honor of the exhibit, University of Kentucky alum and former Director of the UK Martin Luther King Center Ricardo Nazario y Colón will give a lecture titled “Beyond the Cosmic Race: Latinequis in the United States”. The lecture, with reception to follow, will be held on October 10th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm at the Gatton Student Center, room 331.

The exhibit, lecture, and reception are sponsored by University of Kentucky Libraries, Department of Hispanic Studies, College of Arts & Sciences Year of Equity Program, UK Martin Luther King Center, and Latino Student Union.

New Eye-tracking Technology for Addiction Research

Alcohol is the most commonly used addictive substance in the United States, according to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD). One in every 12 adults, 17.6 million people, suffer from alcohol abuse or dependence. Several million more engage in risky, binge drinking patterns that could lead to alcohol problems. Looking into the reasons individuals become addicted to alcohol is why Dr. Mark Fillmore came to the University of Kentucky 17 years ago.
