On Seeing: A Reflection on Culture
Talk by Dr. Alejandro Muzzio, instructor of anthropology
Culture informs every aspect of the human experience, and yet the word "culture" remains obscure. Relying on storytelling, the foundation of the human experience, Dr. Muzzio will share a wide array of humorous, engaging, and compelling personal narratives. Taking you from the jungles of Honduras to the highways of Howard County, we will collectively seek an awareness of what informs our understanding of reality.
Free and open to the public, this series is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Columbia Patuxent. Participants are asked to RSVP at howardcc.edu/lectureseries or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about accessing the virtual lectures will be provided closer to the event date.
