Emily NormandThe thesis that alumna Emily Normand ‘20 wrote when she was an International Scholar was accepted for publication. "The Beautiful Road to Puebla: Joaquín Alliende, Mariology, and the Flowering of Popular Piety," appears in Teología y Vida, a Chilean academic journal of the Pontífica Universidad Católica de Chile.

She wrote the thesis under the guidance of former Faculty Fellow Peter Casarella, who was her ISP advisor, and has adapted it over the years with his continued encouragement, she says.

"All of the research in this paper was made possible by ISP," she writes. "I am so grateful for the support of Kellogg."

Normand is a Master of Theological Studies student with a concentration in theology and the arts at Duke Divinity School, where she is a graduate teaching assistant with the campus museum and a graduate fellow of the Kenan Institute for Ethics. She finds herself increasingly interested in decolonial art and the discipline of art history with a focus on 20th century Mexican art. She hopes to continue this area of work in the future.
