Professor of Spanish

Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics


Pedro passed on July 12, 2016 at the age of 80.

"By the time Cuperman got to Syracuse in 1976, he had six years of teaching at New York University under his belt, along with multiple grants and papers. It would be in the College of Arts and Sciences that he would do his most salient work. Over the next four decades, Cuperman, along with colleagues such as Willie Meltzer and Myron Lichtblau, helped propel the Spanish program to international prominence, while overseeing the Point of Contact (POC) Gallery and publications. Much of his work contested the boundaries of multicultural art, teaching and research." Read more in the Syracuse University News article...
