Lecture given at the Robert C. Goizueta Pavilion at the University of Miami, on March 11, 2010.

Mercedes Cros Sandoval is professor emeritus in the department of social sciences at Miami Dade College and adjunct professor, Department of Psychiatry, at the Miller School of Medicine of the University of Miami. In her most recent book, Worldview, the Orichas, and Santería (University Press of Florida, 2007), Dr. Sandoval examines the transatlantic history of how Yoruba traditions came to Cuba and were established and adapted to Cuban society. She also provides a comprehensive comparison of Yoruba and Cuban mythologies along with an overview of how Santeria has continued to diffuse and change in response to new contexts and adherents--with an especially illuminating perspective on Santería among Cubans in Miami.

This event was part of FEC’s annual Week of Cuban Culture, celebrated from March 6th to March 12th, 2010.
