Serafín M. Coronel-Molina, Associate Professor in Literacy, Culture and Language Education at the School of Education, has been named an Bicentennial Professor by the IU Office of the Bicentennial.
Bicentennial Professors are part of the university’s bicentennial celebration. These professors will deliver four to five lectures throughout Indiana during the 2019-2020 school year.
“I felt very humbled, honored, excited and thankful to be selected to serve as an Indiana University Bicentennial Professor,” Coronel-Molina said. “It has not been an easy journey to get here. To achieve what has been a life-long dream, I have had to struggle through a labyrinth of profound and complex struggles in my life. This is in large part because I am an Indigenous scholar who comes from an isolated, remote area of the South American Andes, where abject poverty is the norm.”
