'The Trouble with my Name' Virtual Event

    September 23, 2020

    The Multicultural Center in partnership with the Latin American Studies, Student Government, University Programming Board Campus Traditions Committee and the Spanish Cultural Society are excited to bring to our campus the virtual presentation “The Trouble with My Name” with Dr. Javier Avila, on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. Dr. Javier Avila's extraordinary work with students earned him the Pennsylvania Professor of the Year Award. For the past three years, he has been touring the U.S. with his high-octane, poignant and hilarious one-man show "The Trouble with My Name" which blends storytelling, comedy, and poetry to shed light on the American Latino experience. Culturally rich and profoundly educational, the presentation provides audiences with an excellent platform for a continued conversation on equity, diversity, inclusion, and antiracism.

    We look forward to joining us on Wednesday, Sept 30.

    This event is open to Scranton faculty, staff, and students only. First come, first served, maximum capacity of 300 people.
