The Honors Program is excited to announce the creation of the Honors Program Lecture Series. Our inaugural event will be a Last Lecture, featuring two of Briar Cliff's favorite (and unfortunately departing) professors: Dr. Will Prigge and Dr. Carlos Vargas-Salgado.
Dr. Prigge's presentation, "Russians, Russification and Latvia's Historiography," raised an important question: Is history really about the past? Prigge's presentation focused on the history of Russians in Latvia and how they came to find themselves there. On another level, it examined the issue of Russification in the historiography of Latvia.
Dr. Carlos Vargas-Salgado's presentation, "Street Performers Do Have a Sense of Humor: Violence and Politics in Peruvian Popular Theatre During an Internal War," analyzed the satire and parody resources deployed both in the independent play A ver un Aplauso! by Cesar De Maria and in the comic monologues of street performers in Lima, Peru by the end of the 80's.
