Lecture given at the Robert and Judi Prokop Newman Alumni Center on November 21, 2011.

Discussing the reception of his work as an activist for Cuban issues, Carlos Eire offers several accounts of the (mis)interpretation of his message by the press and community alike. Although his academic specialty is the social, intellectual, religious, and cultural history of late medieval and early modern Europe, his passion lies in advocating for the interests of the Cuban exile community.

Carlos Eire is the Riggs Professor of History and Religious Studies at Yale, but will be taking a leave of absence in the Spring of 2012. He is the author of the award-winning memoir Waiting for Snow in Havana (2003) and Learning to Die in Miami (2010), among other scholarly publications.

Co-hosted by the The Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies and The Cuban Heritage Collection of the University of Miami Libraries. Made possible by a grant from The Goizueta Foundation.
