“Perspectives on the World” Series Lecture to Focus on Spain

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – Dr. Carmen Ferrero-Pino, associate professor of Spanish at Moravian College, will present a lecture focusing on Spain as part of the Perspectives on the World lecture series, on Monday, February 9 at 7 p.m. in Prosser Auditorium. The Moravian College Alumni Association and the Public Relations Office sponsor this lecture, which is open to the public and admission if free.

Ferrero-Pino’s presentation will offer a brief overview of Spain’s history, explain how Spain became the multilingual and multicultural country it is today, and offer insight into how Spain’s geographical location in southwestern Europe made it the crossroads of multi-civilizations, both Mediterranean and northern European. Samples of art (from prehistoric to 20th century), culture, and musical traditions will illustrate the diversity and richness of the Spanish heritage.

Ferrero-Pino earned her Ph.D. in Spanish Literature from Rutgers University and a Masters in Teaching Methodology from the University in Maine. She earned a Licenciatura en Filología from the University of Valladolid (Spain). She teaches language courses, Peninsular literature/culture, and Women’s Studies. She has written articles, reviews, and theater translations for book publications and literary journals in Spain, the United States, and Mexico. Ferrero-Pino recently completed a textbook about the 18th century neoclassical period in Spain. She frequently participates in conferences and literary workshops in the United States and abroad.

Throughout her career at Moravian, Ferrero-Pino has directed several SOAR (Student Opportunities for Academic Research) and Honors Projects. One of her honor students recently received a research Fulbright to study at the Universidad Autónoma in Madrid, Spain.

A native of Salamanca, Spain, Ferrero-Pino travels to her hometown every year and has visited Latin America on several occasions, as well as many other European countries. She enjoys keeping up with current European and Latin American events. Last May, she organized and led a trip to Spain for Moravian College students, with a course study entitled “Monarchs, Heroes and Myths: the Formation of Spain as a Nation.”

Prosser Auditorium is located in the Haupert Union Building at the corner of Locust and Monocacy Streets in Bethlehem, Pa. For more information, call the Public Relations Office at 610-625-7880.
