Professor Rivera Santana reincorporates after research leave

During Professor Rivera Santana's Research Leave, he assumed the role of Visiting Fellow at the Centre for the Advancement of Indigenous Knowledges at the University of Technology of Sydney (UTS), Australia. Notable accomplishments from this period include publishing an art criticism review for the MoMa solo exhibit in NYC featuring the work of Afro-Puerto Rican artist Daniel Lind Ramos, accessible here. He also delivered a lecture on "Art and Decolonization in Latin America" at the Sydney National Art School, with additional details available on the attached flyer. Additionally, Professor Rivera Santana presented an in-person public lecture at UTS on "Indigenous Constitutional Recognition Around the World." This lecture held particular significance as it preceded the October Australian Referendum, aiming to constitutionally recognize Indigenous peoples as the first peoples and establish an Advisory Government Body known as The Voice.
