International Cinema welcomes Professor Doug Weatherford (Spanish and Portuguese) as a new co-director of the program beginning fall 2020! Professor Weatherford graduated from BYU with a BA in Spanish and the Pennsylvania State University with a PhD Latin American Literature. His research and teaching emphases include Latin American literature and film, with particular interest in Mexico at mid-Century (1920-1968). For example, Weatherford has published extensively on the connection of author Juan Rulfo to the Mexican film industry. Professor Weatherford’s expertise in Latin American cinema will benefit IC for years to come. Welcome, Doug!

Many thanks go to outgoing co-director Professor Chip Oscarson for his tireless work in building the program. We look forward to welcoming Chip back as a faculty speaker and guest on the podcast in the near future.
