NEH Summer Seminar at the State University at Buffalo, June 11-30:
"Negotiating Identities in Art, Literature, and Philosophy: Cuban Americans and American Culture."
The Seminar will focus on two themes: First, how Cuban Americans have enriched American culture with unique contributions in art, literature, and philosophy; second, the way in which Cuban-American artists, writers, and philosophers have negotiated the relation between their Cuban heritage and American identity. The experience of exile and memory that has shaped the contribution of Cuban Americans to American culture will be used to focus the discussion and to establish bridges to the experiences of other immigrant groups who have encountered similar situations.
Directors: Jorge J. E. Gracia, Lynette Bosch, and Isabel Alvarez-Borland. In addition, several distinguished scholars have been invited to share their latest research with seminar participants. An art exhibit will take place concurrently.
