The Kellogg Institute for International Studies, part of the University of Notre Dame’s new Keough School of Global Affairs, is an interdisciplinary community of scholars that promotes research, provides educational opportunities, and builds linkages related to democracy and human development.
Gabriella Perez is currently researching with faculty adviser Fr. Daniel Groody, CSC. Perez is researching a book titled, Passing Over: Migration, Theology, and the Eucharist. The book offers a theological perspective on migration.
Perez also has researched with Professor Thomas Anderson on a book project that is provisionally titled, Images that Matter: Cuban Intellectuals and the US Civil Rights Movement. The book explores how Cuban intellectuals received and dealt with the Civil Rights Movement in the United States.
Perez also sings in the Notre Dame Folk Choir and volunteers with La Casa de Amistad in South Bend. She was a scholar in Girls Who Invest this past summer.
