Bio

Diana Grullón-García has collaborated actively with researchers in the discipline of anthropology, particularly on how race, colonial history, and the Creole language formation has influenced the 20th century Caribbean and Latin American thought. She has participated in twenty academic conferences and has published four academic articles as well as has collaborated with Classic World Cinema reviews in a well-known cultural journal based in Miami, Florida. She is actively involved with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, particularly with the Latinx population in the campus. She is the faculty adviser of the Student Senate and Nuestra Casa, the Latinx student organization at Illinois College. She also has co-lead Sustainable Bolivia BreakAway in 2017, with her departmental colleague Dr. Marek, and the Cuba BreakAway in 2018, with Dr. Gardner. Dr. Grullón-García really enjoys to dialogue in Spanish with students, both learners of Spanish, as a second language, and with the Latinx/Hispanic students in the campus community.
