Professor Andrea Giunta has been appointed to the new Endowed Chair in Latin American Art History and Criticism in the College of Fine Arts’ Department of Art and Art History, which was funded by an allocated $1 million from the network.
“Professor Giunta is one of the world’s leading authorities on modern and contemporary Latin American art,” said Douglas Dempster, dean of the College of Fine Arts. “She brings great distinction to the University’s extensive faculty and special collections in Latin American Studies.”
The Longhorn Network proceeds will also go toward academic chairs in philosophy, physics, the Texas Program in Sports and Media, African and African Diaspora Studies, and mathematics.
