Prof. Lina del Castillo
Professor Lina del Castillo has won a prestigious fellowship at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame, where she will spend the 2014-2015 academic year. At Kellogg, Del Castillo will work on her book project “Mapping Out Colombia: Transatlantic Visions and Regional Designs in the Making of the Early Republic, 1807–1865,” which addresses the importance of place, contingency, and geopolitics for the acquisition, assembly, production, negotiation, and diffusion of geographic knowledge in and about the republic.
Her project highlights the role that trans-imperial and transnational networks played in the emergence of independent nation-states during the early 19th century and demonstrates as well how municipal politics shaped post-independence national projects. For more information, see:
