“Still your Department!”
Those were the words Prof. Michael Iarocci used to welcome over forty former graduate students who gathered in the Department on September 20th-21st, to celebrate the first ‘Encuentros Iberoamericanos Berkeley: Twenty Years”. The two-day conference brought together many academics and professionals currently working in the U.S. and abroad. This was an opportunity to exchange ideas, to think together, to reconnect, to reminiscence and to get reacquainted with colleagues, the Department and their Alma Mater-Berkeley. The Department would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the organizers Rocio Ferreira (class 2002) and Yolanda Martinez-San Miguel (class 1996) for making this event possible.
