Multi-Cultural Roots of Hispanic Heritage in the Americas
November 1 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida International University is hosting lecture exploring history of Hispanic culture in Florida and America. Hispanic American is a general term used to identify persons who are linked to the Spanish-speaking nations in the Americas, originating from their cultural and historical ties to Spain. Although accurate, it does not provide us with a complete description of these culturally rich and diverse societies. Upon deeper examination, we are presented with a mosaic of ethnic identities that have merged for centuries, creating new vibrant national identities. This program addresses the history of exchanges and global interconnections that contributed to “Spanish culture” and expanded throughout the Americas when Native American, European, African, and Asian (Chinese, Japanese, Jewish, and Middle Eastern) peoples interacted.
Registration is required, and the program can be seen in-person or virtually. To register, call: 305-919-5900. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant in partnership with Florida International University.
