Perceptions and Reality

Romare Bearden: Storyteller serves as a catalyst for a roundtable conversation exploring perceptions related to time, place, our collective/personal stories, and images.

Panelists: Lisa Merrill, PhD, professor of writing studies and rhetoric, Hofstra University; SM Rodriguez, PhD, assistant professor of criminology, Department of Sociology, Hofstra University; Álvaro Enrigue, PhD, assistant professor of romance languages and literatures, Hofstra University.
