CERLAC recognizes exceptional scholarship on the Latin American diaspora in Canada

York University PhD student Tamara Toledo (Department of Visual Art and Art History) and MFA film student Jean Pierre Marchant (Department of Cinema and Media Arts) were named the recipients of the 2020 TLN Telelatino Award from the Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean (CERLAC). An honorable mention was also awarded to PhD student Asheda Dwyer (Graduate Program in Social and Political Thought).

The TLN Telelatino Award is awarded annually to an undergraduate or graduate student at York University on the basis of outstanding work on the experiences of the Latin America diaspora in Canada. The prize was established in 2009 by a donation made to York University by Telelatino (TLN), a television channel that broadcasts multicultural programs of interest to the Latin American and Italian communities throughout Canada. Two prizes of $1,000 each are awarded annually.
