Día de Los Muertos (Day of Dead) 2020

As you may know, the department has a beautiful tradition of celebrating Día de Los Muertos (Day of Dead), and unfortunately, this year our students and community could not gather to make a department altar. This year, the Henry Rutgers Term Chair in Latino Studies wanted to share a photo of the simple altar she made at home to remember and honor her grandparents, great grandmother, and uncles who have all passed. We join Professor Lilia Fernandez in wishing you all a happy Day of the Dead as we think about and honor our ancestors.



Warm regards,

Dr. Lilia Fernandez

Associate Professor, Latino & Caribbean Studies and History
