He was awarded two Pulitzers for his work for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 1999 and 2003.
He also has been the recipient of the National Press Foundation's Berryman Award for Cartoonist of the Year and received first place in the Best of the West Journalism Competition for his columns about the 2008 presidential election.
Horsey graduated from the University of Washington, where he wrote, edited and drew cartoons for The Daily. When his former adviser at The Daily became an editor for the Seattle P-I, he recruited Horsey for the position of editorial cartoonist.
Horsey stayed with the P-I for more than 30 years covering national and international news, from national political party conventions and presidential primaries to the Olympic Games.
As a Rotary Foundation Scholar, Horsey earned a master's degree in international relations from the University of Kent at Canterbury. He also was awarded an honorary doctorate from Seattle University.
He has published seven books of cartoons, including his two most recent, Draw Quick, Shoot Straight and From Hanging Chad to Baghdad.
Barreto: Cuban arts
Barreto has been a Spanish instructor at Peninsula College since 2005.
In her keynote address, “The Art of Difference: An Overview of the Arts in Cuba Today,” she will talk about the research and work she completed as part of her sabbatical during the 2012-2013 academic year, specifically a trip she took to Havana.
Barreto traveled to Cuba in March of 2013 with Art Encounter, a nonprofit art education organization.
There, she met with artists in their homes and studios; attended art exhibits, concerts and dance performances; and visited Cuba's premier art school, a rural artist community, an eco-village and Hemingway's Finca.
She also attended the 2013 World Art Deco Conference in Havana.
Her current scholarship focuses on Cuban women writers and visual artists living in the United States, and her work investigates issues related to gender, cultural identity and migration.
She has two forthcoming articles: “Subjectivity and Creativity in Maya Islas' Lifting the Tempest at Breakfast” will be published in a special issue of Letras Femeninas, and “Subversion in Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda's Sab,” a piece originally published in Decimonónica (Winter 2006), is being reprinted in Nineteenth-Century Literary Criticism.
Barreto has a bachelor's degree in international relations from Agnes Scott College, a master's in liberal arts from the University of South Florida and a doctorate from Florida State University.
