"La diplomacia del béisbol" A talk by Norberto Codina

September 11th, 2015
4:00PM

Location
Greenleaf Conference Room, 100A Jones Hall

Baseball has always been a common shared space between the United States and Cuba, connecting citizens from both countries— not only through the sport and the spectacle, but also through (or beyond) culture, race, religion, politics, and geography.

This talk will be given in Spanish but will be translated to English.

Norberto Codina (Caracas, Venezuela, 1951). Poet, author, and editor. Codina has published many books of chronicles, prose, and poems. He holds some of the most prestigious Cuban poetry prizes, including David (1974, 1976), Poesía de Amor de Varadero (1982) and Julián del Casal UNEAC (1983). Codina was a finalist for the Critics National Award (1987), was honored with a National Culture Distinction by the National Ministry of Culture (1996), and was awarded with the Cultural Journalism Prize (2005). He has been the Executive Director of La Gaceta de Cuba for the last 25 years.
