Congratulations to doctoral candidate Leo Falcon for receiving the Cuban Research Institute's Eliana Rivero Scholarship to enable him to carry out research in Cuba in furtherance of his research project entitled "Manufacturing Sin: Francisco Carranco and the Establishment of the Inquisition in Cuba and the Caribbean, 1595–1614." Leo earned his M.A. in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Florida International University and his B.A. in Cultural Anthropology at the University of North Texas.
Our warmest congratulations to our most recent graduate students who attained their Ph.D degrees this spring. They are Jessica Allison [mentor: Dr. Noble David Cook], Sven Kube [mentors: Dr. Jenna Gibbs and Dr. Kenneth Lipartito], Jordan Malfoy [mentor: Dr. Gwyn Davies], and Rene Silva [mentor: Dr. Kirsten Wood].
Congratulations to Rosabel Gomez (F16) on her admission to the University of Washington’s Master’s Degree program in Museum Studies. Rose already has an impressive list of museum credentials, with experiences including a commercial art gallery, an internship with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, The History of Diving Museum in the Keys, and recently with History Miami, where she has been for over a year.

For undergraduate history majors or minors, working with an academic advisor is an important part of completing your coursework. Please contact Academic Advisor Manuel Niño or Faculty Advisor Judith Mansilla.
You can learn more about advising, including the Advisors' current walk-in hours, at our Advising page.
Please consider donating to the History Department so that we can continue to provide stipends and scholarships to students in need.
The following are funds associated with the History Department:
FIU is partnering with the Historic Hampton House on a two year project which offers graduate students and undergraduates a chance to gain real world skills, serve the community, earn internship credit, and produce a historical exhibit.
During the segregation era, the Hampton House was the premier hotel for African Americans visiting Miami. Unable to stay at the fancy hotels on Miami Beach, where they often performed, great American musicians stayed at the Hampton House during their time in Miami: Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie, and other jazz, blues and soul performers.
We are looking for two to three undergraduates and graduate students for internships and class credit, starting this summer and continuing through next year.
For undergraduates and graduate students not on funding, there are also stipends available.
For more information, please contact Prof. Ken Lipartito at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FIU Department of History is pleased to announce the Volume 1, Issue 2 of Yesterday Today, the FIU history department's newsletter, is now available.
You can read Issue 1 of Yesterday Today here.
