About this event

The Humanities Institute of the Mississippi State College of Arts and Sciences and the IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Awareness) committee will co-host Carlos Cañas Dinarte, the deputy director of the Academia de Historia (National Academy of History) of El Salvador for a special Hispanic Heritage Month presentation titled “Luis de Moscoso y Alvarado: desde San Miguel de la Frontera hasta el río Mississippi (Luis de Moscoso y Alvarado: From San Miguel de la Frontera to the Mississippi River)” .

One of the most important expeditions to the South was led by Hernando de Soto and his second in command Luis de Moscoso y Alvarado. While history textbooks have often denied the Spanish presence in the 16th century, Dinarte’s account aims to draw connections between these expeditions and Spanish involvement in Central America.

The in-person discussion is scheduled for 3 p.m. Monday [Oct. 17] in room 2180 of the Old Main Academic Center. You can also visit https://www.facebook.com/msu.humanities.institute at that time for a virtual option.

For more information, contact Melanie Loehwing, acting director of the Institute for the Humanities, at 662-325-8264.
