Hostos175 Lecture & Workshop: Roberto Mori, “The Hostos Legacy”/ Teaching Hostos at Hostos Workshop

April 21, 2014 | Hostos Community College

Monday, April 28, 2014, 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Hostos Community College, B-501

Please join us on Monday, April 28 at 3:30 in B-501 for a dual event.

In the first hour Dr. Roberto Mori, Emeritus Professor of the University of Puerto Rico, will deliver his talk titled “Hostos: Life and Legacy, or Is Hostos Still Unburied?” His talk will deal with the creation of institutions that have been connected to Hostos’s work and ideas, such as the 1939 centennial celebration, the creation of the Institute of Hostosian Studies at the University of Puerto Rico, and the publication of a new critical edition of Hostos’s complete works. Additionally, Dr. Mori will highlight recent appropriations of Hostosian concepts by community and political organizations that are working for social change.

In the second hour we will conduct a workshop aimed at expanding the teaching of Hostos—the man and his ideas—at Hostos. Faculty teaching Hostos material will share their experiences in the hopes of encouraging a broader integration of Hostos into our college’s curriculum. Those interested in presenting at the workshop should contact Professor Orlando Hernandez at ohernandez@hostos.cuny.edu and/or Professor Ernest Ialongo at eialongo@hostos.cuny.edu.
