We here at What's Up stop at nothing, nothing, to track down old friends and departmental alum. We want to know what they -- you, maybe -- are up to, and frankly we intend to find out. Take Alex Taylor, for example. Alex completed his MA here in 1995 and then proceeded to the University of Calgary for his Ph.D. Word has now reached us that Alex is married and a father and living in Washington, D.C. where he works for the Council of Latino Agencies, which works on behalf of the Latino community in D.C. and the surrounding region of Virginia and Maryland. In keeping with his longstanding interest in human rights, and with his scholarly and personal interests on human rights abuses in Guatamala, Chile, and Argentina, Alex is also actively involved with Amnesty International. So much so, in fact, that he was the subject of an online profile in the Fall 2006 edition of their online newletter. Click here to see Alex and read more about his work.
