Speaking of Books: A Conversation with Laurie Frederik Meer

Description:
March 13, 2014, 4:30 pm: the UMD Libraries presents a talk by Dr. Laurie Frederik Meer, Associate Professor in the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, and affiliate faculty member in the Departments of Anthropology, Latin American Studies, and Ethnomusicology. Dr. Frederik will discuss her book Trumpets in the Mountains: Theater and the Politics of National Culture in Cuba (Duke University Press, 2012), which examines the complex relationships among performing artists, state institutions, and the Cuban people in contemporary culture. She looks at rural-urban tensions in identity politics and creative process, and provides an on-the-ground account of how visions of the nation are developed, manipulated, dramatized, and subverted. This event, part of the series "Speaking of Books: Conversations with Campus Authors," is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
