Spanish Professor Awarded the James Hubbard Award

June 1, 2016

Dr. Enrique Porrua is the 2016 winner of the James Hubbard Award, which recognizes and supports exemplary faculty research. The award supports Dr. Porrua's ongoing research on the navigation diary written by Lieutenant Antonio de Tova Arredondo during an eighteenth-century expedition. Dr. Porrua has published an annotated transcription of the diary, and is now delving in to some of the ethnological, etnographical, and anthropological data presented in the narrative, as well as thinking about its implications on the idea of the "floating fronteir" of the Pacific Northwest.
