DescriptionThis lecture will explore the concept of personal and cultural identity and highlight the discovery of Hispaniola, its subsequent colonization, and the events that have shaped its transformation. Two republics with a common heritage have shared the island of Hispaniola for more than five centuries. In spite of the many conflicts that have arisen through the years between the two nations, the cultural identities that have emerged on both sides of the island today undeniably point to a common ancestry.
