Congrats to the following Draperites who have recently had work published!
From current student, Nancy Ross:
— Letter translations that were published in Temporales, the online journal of the Creative Writing in Spanish program at NYU: http://www.revistatemporales.com/
These three letters can serve as an introduction to the collection of letters, Cartas a Ricardo, that Rosario Castellanos wrote to her husband, Ricardo Guerra Tejada. In her letters, Castellanos struggles to define herself in her multiple roles: writer, teacher, mother, stepmother and wife. Nancy thinks of her translations of this work into English as a kind of conversation.
From Draper alumn Alex Carp:
— A a mini-profile of Bruce Schneier, the cryptographer who recently revealed that he’d been working with Glenn Greenwald to decipher the NSA/Snowden documents. At Politico Magazine:
— For Guernica’s issue on the American South, an interview with Bryan Stevenson, an Alabama public-interest lawyer who is known mostly for taking cases related to the death penalty, unfair sentencing, and prosecutorial misconduct, but who recently started a different kind of project: locating former slave markets and lynching sites across the country, and, for the first time, marking these sites publicly and officially, as worthy of historical significance and commemoration.
