Congratulations to Gabriela Aceves on winning the CALACS Book Prize 2020

Congratulations to UBC History PhD alumni Gabriela Aceves on winning the Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS) Book Prize 2020!

Her book, Women Made Visible: Feminist Art and Media in Post-1968 Mexico City (Lincoln & London: University of Nebraska Press, 2019), focuses on an important group of women who radically pushed the boundaries of artistic, political and urban space in Mexico in the 1970s. As CALACS stated, “Through Aceves’ book we learn how to see differently. It’s a brilliant accomplishment.”
