Two nations with a common heritage have shared the island of Hispaniola for more than five centuries. In spite of the conflicts that have arisen through the years, the cultural identities that have emerged on both sides of the island point to a common ancestry. The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences will host a discussion on this topic as part of its Faculty Lecture Series.
“Voila! The Discovery of Hispaniola: Colonization and Cultural Identity of Two Nations”
Faculty Lecture Series, Michael Voltaire, Ph.D., BCBA-D, assistant professor
