Discussion: The Legacy of Fidel Castro

The death of Fidel Castro on November 25, 2016 marked the end of one of the world’s most influential people. Leaving behind a legacy mired in international sanctions, political imprisonments, human and civil rights abuses while simultaneously achieving universal healthcare, the right to employment for the Cuban people and close to a 100% literacy rate. Described by many as a dictator, he was also hailed, as Richard Gott described him, as a “world hero in the mould of Garibaldi” for many people of the developing world.

Lunchtime Time Machine: What was the best brewery in Savannah in 1735?

This installment of the Department of History's undergraduate lecture series features Ph.D. candidate James Owen, whose research uses musicology as a lens to understand Moravian missions in the New World, and their interactions with Indians, slaves, and runaway slave communities. Believe it or not, brewing plays a surprising role in that history, too. 

Free admission, free pizza.
