Maya Tellman, Summer 2013

Maya Tellman interned at CIBS during the summer of 2013, researching the state of Brazilian Studies programs and partnerships at universities throughout the U.S. northeast. Since her time at CIBS, she graduated from Cornell with a Bachelors in Urban Studies and a Minor in Development Sociology. In February 2016, with the support of CIBS and the Fulbright program, she will travel to northern Brazil to research the social and environmental impacts of hydroelectric damming throughout the Amazon, focusing primarily on methods of public participation and the status of indigenous voices in the pushback process. She has partnered with Professor Sonia Magalhães, a longtime colleague of CIBS at the Federal University of Pará, to complete this research.
