Despite its geographical proximity to the United States, Latin America remains barely an afterthought within the scope of U.S. foreign policy. This is paralleled by a generalized disinterest in the history and culture of Latin Americans and Latinos/Hispanics, 60 million of whom live in the United States.
Prof. Luis Martínez-Fernández, professor of history will explore issues including:
• Deeper definitions of culture
• Should we speak of one or many Latin American cultures?
• What do Hispanics/Latinos bring to the table?
• Translating across cultures
This is a free event in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
