GLINT Talk Series Event

Please join us on Wednesday, February 7th, 2018 for the next installment of our GLINT Talks series, featuring Andrea Herrera (see below details). 

From 11:30am-12:15pm, we will focus our discussion on the theme of international collaborations and brainstorm best practices, opportunities, and challenges. This discussion will serve as a lead in to Dr. Herrera's presentation of "Cuba, A Moveable Nation" from 12:15pm-1:15pm, with time for questions and discussions afterward.

All activities take place in Academic Office Building 301. Feel free to join us at any time, for whatever time you have available.

"Cuba, a Moveable Nation"

Fundamental questions regarding what constitutes a nation in the context of movement and displacement inform a long tradition of Cuban art.  This presentation will discuss the impulse in contemporary Cuban diasporic art to forge a set of fundamental motifs and elements that articulate a national identity and connect their work to a longer cultural tradition of modernist or vanguardia art and writing, which emerged following the establishment of the Republic in 1902.  

Wednesday, February 7 at 11:30am to 1:30pm
This is a past event.
