Juan González is this year’s Andrés Bello Chair in Latin American Cultures and Civilizations at NYU.
According to NYU, “The endowed Chair honors one of the greatest political and intellectual figures of the American hemisphere, the Venezuelan-born scholar and teacher, Andrés Bello (1781-1865). Famous as the tutor of Simón Bolívar, author and compiler of one of the most important modern grammars of the Spanish language, Andrés Bello is also remembered as the founder of the University of Chile and the author of that country’s Civil Code.
The Chair allows the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center to bring to NYU leading scholars of Latin American culture as visiting professors and researchers, and to support conferences and public lectures centered on the Andrés Bello Professorship.”
