Program Director Buscaglia recieves 2013 Nicolás Guillén Prize for Philosophical Literature

Professor Buscaglia was honored with the 2013  Nicolás Guillén Prize for Philosophical Literature bestowed by the Caribbean Philosophical Association (CPA). Past recipients of this award include Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez and other major Caribbean writers such as Wilson Harris, Edwidge Danticat and Junot Díaz. According to the selection committee of the CPA, the award was given “for the overall impact of his work as a literary critic, public intellectual, and institution builder. The committee paid special attention to the influence of his book Undoing Empire, Race, and Nation in the Mulatto Caribbean, which has already influenced scholars across the globe since its publication in 2003.”
