Madrid selected Honors’ Carruthers Distinguished Chair
Arturo Madrid is happy to be home. In 1960, when the native of Tierra Amarilla took his UNM-earned bachelor’s to California to pursue a Ph.D., he went with the intention of returning to his alma mater to teach. It has taken 44 years, but he has finally made it back. Madrid has been named the Garrey Carruthers Distinguished Chair in Honors for the fall semester.
Delighted to be offered the opportunity to teach in the University Honors Program, he said, “I was an undergraduate in 1958, when UNM’s honors program was starting up, and I was always disappointed not to have been chosen to participate in those early classes that were the forerunners of today’s honors seminars.”
His honors seminar, “U.S. Latino/a Artistic and Cultural Expression,” looks at the artistic contributions of the Mexican, Puerto Rican and Cuban communities in this country and examines the cultural context in which that art is produced.
He also teaches an undergraduate class, “Chicano/Latino Autobiography,” for the American Studies and Chicano Studies departments.
Madrid will give a free public lecture, “Of Heretics and Interlopers,” on Wednesday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Dudley Wynn Honors Forum. Refreshments will be served after the lecture.
Madrid was the founding president of the Tomás Rivera Center, a national institute for policy studies on Latino issues. He served as director of the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education and Minority Institutions Sciences Improvement Program with the U.S. Department of Education. He was chair of the University of Minnesota’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese and was also an associate dean.
Among his awards are the Charles Frankel Prize from the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1996 and the President’s Medal from Brooklyn College in 1997.
Madrid will hold the Carruthers Chair through the end of the fall semester. Those interested in having Madrid visit a class should call the University Honors Program at 277-4211.
