Gabriella Gutiérrez y Muhs, professor of Modern Languages and Women and Gender Studies, gave three community presentations in March. She read two poems she wrote to welcome Miguel Fraga, the first secretary of the newly re-established Cuban embassy in Washington, D.C., during his visit to Seattle. She served on a panel sponsored by the Northwest Film Forum and the University of Washington Bothell to celebrate International Women's Day. She also presented her poetry at the City of Seattle Race and Social Justice Summit.
This month Gutiérrez y Muhs will join the Seattle Arts and Lectures program as the academic discussant for the launch of a new book featuring 20 unearthed poems by Pablo Neruda.
