Inside Scoop for undergraduates: José Ángel N. is on January 25, at 12:00 p.m. at La Casa Cultural Latina (1203 W Nevada St, Urbana, IL)
Inside Scoop events bring University of Illinois undergraduates from any major into close conversation about humanities and arts-related topics with distinguished Illinois faculty and visiting scholars.
By creating opportunities for the exchange of ideas in a casual setting, scholars and artists can share with students the great moments of discovery, creativity, and excitement that fuel their research and their ongoing commitment to their work at the university and in the outside world. Intended for students from across the campus, Inside Scoop conversations invite Illinois undergraduates to engage with the vibrant developments and exciting work conducted by scholars whose work helps us understand what it means to be human in a world of rapidly shifting global complexities.
This event is co-sponsored by La Casa Cultural Latina and is part of the Lunch On Us event series.
