This Friday I’ll be speaking at Texas A&M University. I’ll be reading my non-fiction essay “See” and a new flash fiction “My Window.” (This will be that particular flash fictions first public reading.)
Thu, April 28, 2016 – Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s English and History Departments will host the Bodies Graduate Symposium Keynote Address featuring a talk to be given by Dr. Raul Necochea, titled “Windows to Binational Health: Preventive Care and Latin American Migrant Women,” on Thursday, April 28, at 6 p.m. in the University Center, Bayview Room 320. With a strong interest in the humanities, Necochea, Assistant Professor in the Department of Social Medicine at The University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill, is the author of “A History of Family Planning in Twentieth-Century Peru.” He is presently researching the history of Mexican health policies for immigrants to the U.S., and the first engagements of African personnel in HIV/AIDS research. Necochea obtained his Ph.D. in History from McGill University and held a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health before coming to UNC.
