About Us

The course Hispanic Hartford is part of an innovative curriculum designed by the Hispanic Studies Program at Trinity College, and a requirement for all majors. For more information about our program, please visit our departmental website.

Trinfo Cafe is an internet cafe that serves the neighborhood surrounding Trinity’s campus. It provides basic computer training in English and in Spanish for community members and free internet service to the community, including special after-school hours for children. Under the guidance of director Carlos Espinosa, life-long Hartford resident and Trinity graduate, Trinity students develop and teach their own curriculum in topics such as Frontpage web design and Microsoft Office.

This website is the product of the community-mindedness of both Hispanic Studies and Trinfo Cafe, and its creation was funded by a generous grant from the Mellon Foundation.

For the fall and spring semesters of the years 2008-9, Prof Anne Gebelein is teaching the course HISP 280: Hispanic Hartford, that maintains this site. Please email her with any comments about content. anne.gebelein@trincoll.edu.
