Associate Professor of Theatre, Timothy J. Amrhein will join the ranks of Distinguished CUNY Fellows at the Advanced Research Collaborative, the Graduate Center for the Spring 2016.  Prof. Amrhein will be one of a number of Fellows who will constitute a community of scholars pursuing their independent intellectual interests which, although diverse, cluster around research themes of priority important to the CUNY institution.   His appointment will be as a fellow for the Spring academic period beginning January 29, 2016 through August 24, 2016.  While at the Graduate Center, Prof. Amrhein intends to continue his work on applying and translating the ideas of minorities (specifically Latinos) into the context of American theatre in English.  He will also move forward in his research of deconstructing plays in Spanish that deal with the universal theme of self-identity and work on translating them into English. This will also be a wonderful opportunity to work on cross-disciplinary projects with other scholars.
