After Thoughts

Modern Pilgrims and Ancient Paths: Saint James Path for the Contemporary Soul
Presented by Cristina Ortiz (Humanistic Studies – Spanish)

Cristina Ortiz was born in San Sebastián (Spain) where she completed her undergraduate studies in Philosophy and Education. She came to the United States in 1987 to further her education and obtained a Master’s Degree and a Ph.D. in Spanish and Latin American Literatures from the University of Cincinnati. Her research interests are focused on women’s issues, concepts of nation and nationalism in film and literature, and issues in higher education.

In 1993 she came to UW-Green Bay where she teaches Spanish language and culture courses. She has led travel courses to Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Spain and Australia.

Now in its third full season, After Thoughts seeks to connect women in the community with UW-Green Bay. The gatherings showcase University faculty, staff and guests, and convene women — and often “a few good men” — after their workdays for learning, enrichment and fun. The sessions are so named because they provide “After Thoughts” for participants to take with them when they leave.
