Summer Fellow

Guillermo S. Arsuaga

Guillermo S. Arsuaga is a Ph.D. student in the History and Theory of Architecture and a Summer Fellow in Digital Humanities. For his project, Arsuaga will use the online archives of the New York Public Library to learn how in the first half of the twenty century, the written media described the immigration medical inspections at Ellis Island. He will also consider parallels with the current pandemic, particularly with regard to spatial transformations in urban spaces, border controls, and global mobilities.
