In a ceremony on Aug. 20, Swarthmore Centennial Professor of Sociology Braulio Muñoz was named Profesor Honorario at the Ricardo Palma University in Lima, Peru. In acknowledgement of this honor, as part of the ceremony Muñoz gave a lecture titled Lo concreto y lo universal: el caso de la communidad académica, which will be published in the university magazine. As an honorary professor at the university, which boasts an enrollment of 20 thousand students, he will be permitted to attend sessions of the Consejo Universitario (university council) to participate in institutional planning and have privileged access to all events as well as to university libraries and laboratories. Moreover, the university press will translate and publish many of his sociological and literary works.
