Diversity in the Humanities

The Honors Program and Language Department are pleased to explore Diversity in the Humanities during the month of April with two events of broad interest to our community. Both events are open to the public.

MONDAY, APRIL 9TH AT 10:30 AM - This lecture features award-winning documentary film maker Rodrigo Otero Heraud and indigenous Peruvian spiritual leader Hipólito Peralta Ccama, on tour to discuss the message and making of The Eyes of the Journey. The film is a soliloquy by Peralta as he wanders the highlands and considers the fate of Mother Earth and her children. After screening an excerpt from the film, RCC students will lead a discussion with our international guests.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25TH AT 1:30 PM - This lecture features a literary reading by Dominican-American author Junot Díaz, followed by Q&A. Díaz is the author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and recipient of the Pullitzer Prize. He is also celebrating the release of his first children's book, Islandborn. After Diaz' conversation with the audience, there will be a reception, book signing and student poster session sponsored by the Honors Program.

Both lectures will be held in the Media Arts Center (Building 1).  Click here to RSVP for either lecture.  For more information, contact Susan Kalt at 857-701-1372 or Dustin Rollins at jrollins@rcc.mass.edu.
