The arts, languages and philosophy department invites the Spanish-speaking community at S&T to participate in the next el conversatorio event at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, via Zoom. Zoom link: https://bit.ly/3qWpGyg
Guest speaker Jeff Miller will present a talk titled “Everything Goes South: Starry Nights and Daydreams Pedaling Across Mexico.”
Jeff Miller holds degrees in Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American Studies from the University of Kansas. He currently resides near Mexico City and has previously lived in Mexico, Central America, and the United States. Jeff enjoys traveling around the world by bicycle. Over the last five years, he’s traveled extensively throughout the United States and Mexico on his green bicycle, Isabella. His recent attempt to pedal from Oregon to Argentina was cut short in southern Oaxaca by the Covid-19 pandemic, but he plans to continue once it’s safe to do so. Jeff believes that bicycle travel is something that can be enjoyed by everyone.
El Conversatorio is a one-hour informal virtual talk in which guest speakers from different areas of the Spanish-speaking world share their thoughts on current events and issues. After a brief presentation of 15-20 minutes, followed by a question-and-answer session, participants can join fun activities using breakout rooms in Zoom and practice their Spanish. For more information, please contact Dr. M. Emilia Barbosa, assistant professor of Spanish, at email@example.com
