On Sunday, April 29, the Department of Modern Languages will host its 2018 spring cultural program. Co-sponsored by the Peruvian Arts Society, this year's program features a conversation with award-winning poet Odi Gonzales. The event is free and open to all members of the university community.
Born in Cusco, Peru, Gonzales is a poet who writes in both Spanish and Quechua, the indigenous language spoken by people who live in the Andes and highlands of South America. He is the author of seven collections of poems, and recipient of Peru's César Vallejo National Poetry Prize and the Prize in Poetry from the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos de Lima. He currently teaches Quechua language and culture, and pre-Hispanic literature of the Andean region at New York University.
