Richard Blanco and Cecilia Vicuña

Poet and multidisciplinary artist Cecilia Vicuña was born and raised in Chile. In her poems, she engages themes of language and memory, with particular attention to decay and exile. As art historian Roberto Tejada observed, “Vicuña’s work, at its very essence, is ‘a way of remembering’—as if exile and recall joined to unravel an ‘autobiography in debris’ as one personal story within a larger narrative.” Read more about Cecilia Vicuña at: and

Richard Blanco was born in Madrid and immigrated to the United States as an infant with his Cuban-exile family. He was raised in Miami and earned a BS in civil engineering and MFA in creative writing from Florida International University. In 2013, Blanco was chosen to serve as the fifth inaugural poet of the United States. Blanco performed “One Today,” an original poem he wrote for the occasion, becoming the youngest, first Latino, immigrant, and openly gay writer to hold the honor.

Dr. Chris Noutsos, from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, will be giving a guest lecture on the use of the Perl scripting language for the processing of large data sets in Biology.

Dr. Noutsos graduated with a PhD from the renowned Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding in Germany, where he studied Endosymbiosis and the mechanism by which DNA is transferred from the organelles to the nucleus of the cell.

At Cold Spring Harbor, Dr. Noutsos works in the field of computational biology on the iPlant Collaborative project. His aim is to enable bench biologists to use highly complicated software for the analysis of DNA sequences by populating those software via a rich graphical user interface.

The 2015 Humanity in Action Fellowship programs in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Warsaw are now open.

Humanity in Action invites applications from college students and recent graduates who are passionate about active and responsible citizenship, diversity and human rights. Current sophomores, juniors and seniors as well as graduates from the undergraduate classes of 2013 and2014 are eligible. Humanity of Action encourages students of all academic disciplines, interests and backgrounds to apply.

The 2015 Humanity in Action Fellowship will run from May 25-June 28, 2015. The deadline to apply for this program is January 8, 2015. This scholarship is not administered in any way through NYU — i.e., you apply directly to the organization.

About the Humanity in Action Fellowship

For the past 16 years, the Humanity in Action Fellowship has brought together international groups of students and young professionals to study human and minority rights in Europe. Beginning with the Second World War and the Holocaust, the Fellowship explores the histories and contemporary issues of diversity and minority rights in Europe. Key areas of inquiry include national identity, immigration, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, racism, political extremism and discrimination of Roma – all seen through the specific lens of the five countries in which the Fellowship takes place.

The 2015 programs will begin in Washington, DC at the Council on Foreign Relations and continue for four weeks in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Warsaw.

Fellows are placed in one of these five cities and attend discussions with renowned scholars and activists, visit historical sites and engage in discussions on a range of political and social issues. Participation requires intellectual curiosity and stamina, as well as the ability to work effectively in international teams. Students from American universities will work and learn alongside Fellows from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Poland, Turkey and Ukraine.

After the program, Fellows join the global network of over 1,400 Humanity in Action Senior Fellows. As Senior Fellows, they are eligible for advanced professional opportunities, such as fellowships in the U.S. Congress and the European Parliament.
