The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences will open its Faculty Lecture Series for the fall 2013 semester with a screening and discussion of a short documentary film exploring environmental changes in Mexico.

Laguna Manatí: Can ‘Good’ Arise from ‘Bad’ Environmental Changes?

Faculty Lecture Series | Eileen Smith-Cavros, M.F.A., Ph.D., associate professor at the college
Thursday, Sept. 19
5:00–6:00 p.m.
Alvin Sherman Library | Second Floor Gallery

 

About the Event

The documentary film is based on research conducted in rural Veracruz, Mexico, by Eileen Smith-Cavros, the late Edward O. Keith, their colleagues, and NSU undergraduate students. The film—in Spanish with English subtitles—explores the complexities of environmental changes, such as local extinction of manatees. Co-directed by Smith-Cavros and sociology major Guadalupe Almanza, the documentary is narrated by Jessica Garcia-Brown, J.D., LL.M., associate professor at the college, and dedicated to Keith, a college faculty member who passed away in September 2012.

About the Series

The Faculty Lecture Series draws from the knowledge and expertise of more than 140 full-time faculty members within the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences. The series explores the faculty’s diverse areas of interest in the arts, humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, and biological sciences. These talks are free, and all are welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, contact James Doan, Ph.D., professor at the college, at (954) 262-8207.
