April 24, 2018: Faculty Talks Outside the Box
Why Does Latin American History Matter?

So much information—and misinformation—floods our airwaves daily that the historical roots of contemporary problems are easily lost. This is why historians like Dr. Alcira Dueñas, associate professor of Latin American history, struggle to restore their field to the service of truth, peace, and humanity. This talk will demonstrate why history matters by discussing how a historical perspective on current events involving Latin America is crucial in order to avoid distortions rendered as truth. These distortions devalue the public discourse and mislead news consumers. Without an understanding of past relations, it is impossible for the public to make the best decisions for future ties between our nation and the rest of the hemisphere.

11-12 PM
Free and Open to the Public.
