Cecilia Cornejo, Part-Time Faculty in Cinema and Media Studies, is one of just two inaugural recipients of the 2020 McKnight Fellowship for Community-Engaged Artists. Funded by a grant from the McKnight Foundation and administered by the Pillsbury House Theatre, this fellowship provides a generous stipend, public recognition, professional development, one-on-one mentorship, and participation in a public discussion about artistic practices that engage relationships aimed at producing social transformation. In work such as her documentary Ways of Being Home and her multidisciplinary, multi-media project The Wandering House, professor Cornejo examines notions of belonging and the immigrant experience while exploring the traces of historical trauma on people and places.
