Dr. Huacuja-Alonso named 2019 ACLS Fellow
The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) has named Dr. Huacuja-Alonso as one of its 2019 ACLS Fellows for her work on “Radio for the Millions: Hindi-Urdu Broadcasting and the Politics of Sound in Modern South Asia.” For more information, see 'Inside CSUSB' article which details the full details of this prestigious award. “Radio for the Millions” is a transnational history of radio broadcasting in Hindi and Urdu from 1920 to 1980. It argues that the medium of radio enabled listeners and broadcasters in South Asia to contest the cultural, linguistic, and political agendas of the British colonial administration and subsequent independent Indian and Pakistani governments. This means that Dr. Huacuja-Alonso will be working on this project for the 2019/20 AY and will not be teaching her courses for the year. We congratulate her on this tremendous award!
