The UConn PBK thanks Dr. Ricardo Padrón for joining us Thursday, November 3rd for a lecture in the Humanities Institute on the Storrs campus. In addition to his wonderful talk, Dr. Padrón joined chapter Treasurer Ken Foote, Professor of Geography, in co-teaching a class about cartography/geovisualization. They co-led a combined Geography and Spanish literature course.
Dr. Padrón is a Professor of Spanish at the University of Virginia. His area of specialization is the literature and culture of the early modern Hispanic World. He has published extensively, including in 2020 The Indies of the Setting Sun: How Early Modern Spain Mapped the Far East as the Transpacific West. See https://www.pbk.org/Ricardo-Padron.
