The Barbara Harlow Endowed Internship in Human Rights and Social Justice

Home » The Barbara Harlow Endowed Internship in Human Rights and Social Justice

Barbara Harlow (1948-2017) was the Louann and Larry Temple Centennial Professor of English Literature at the University of Texas at Austin, and a committed colleague, friend, and mentor to countless students, activists, and intellectuals. Barbara Harlow’s intellectual praxis crossed continents and encompassed diverse agendas: resistance, translation, political engagement and solidarity, human rights, and pedagogy.

To ensure that Barbara’s legacy lives on, a group of former students, colleagues, and friends have decided to endow the Barbara Harlow Internship in Human Rights and Social Justice, which was established by the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice shortly after Barbara’s passing. The internship introduces undergraduate students to Harlow’s scholarship and activism and encourages them to imagine future trajectories for her work.

We appreciate and will recognize donations of any amount, whether one-time or recurring. We are especially grateful to those who contribute or pledge $1000 or more to be in the Circle of Friends.

Our warm thanks to those who have already generously contributed to the endowment.
