Cars and Cigars: The Enduring Mystique of Cuba

September 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Nova Southeastern University’s Center for Applied Humanities hosts “Cars and Cigars: The Enduring Mystique of Cuba” as part of the “Encanto: Everyday Magic” series celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Join the center for a stimulating panel discussion focusing on how the mythology surrounding Cuba both pre- and post-Castro, has had an enduring effect on U.S. culture. Panelists include Jackie Nespral, Dr. Guillermo Grenier, and Dr. G. Nelson Bass.

Jackie Nespral is an Emmy award-winning journalist and weekday evening anchor at NBC 6 in Miami. She is also the host of “Impact,” a locally-produced weekly show dedicated to politics and current events and has extensive experience covering Cuba and local Hispanic communities. Dr. Guillermo Grenier is a Professor of Sociology at the Green School of International and Public Affairs at Florida International University. His research focuses on the dynamic of ideology and identity in the Cuban-American populations of the United States. Dr. G. Nelson Bass is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at NSU who specializes in Latin American and foreign policy and labor relations.

Parking is available at the Alvin Sherman Library parking garage.
