This free presentation will be given by Dr. Felipe Fernández-Armesto on Friday, March 11, 2016 at the Center for English as a Second Language, on the University of Arizona campus at 1100 James E. Rogers Way, Tucson at 7:00 pm.* One of our greatest historians, Dr. Felipe Fernández-Armesto discusses our Hispanic past with insight and wit. The United States is still typically conceived of as an offshoot of England, with our history unfolding east to west beginning with the first English settlers in Jamestown. This view overlooks the significance of America’s Hispanic past. In his book Our America: A Hispanic History of the United States Dr. Fernández-Armesto, a British historian of Spanish heritage and history professor at the University of Notre Dame, recasts the pilgrimage of Hispanics in the United States as a rich and moving chronicle. With the profile of the United States increasingly Hispanic, the importance of recovering the Hispanic dimension to our national story has never been greater. Reception follows presentation. This is a presentation of the Arnold and Doris Roland Distinguished Speaker Series made possible by the generosity of Arnold and Doris Roland.
