From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Presenters: Dr. Amy Ortiz and Sarah Sullivan
Sarah Sullivan (History Instructor), Amy Ortiz (Art History Instructor), and students from their Learning Community, Corsets and Codpieces share their findings on Christopher Columbus and the "discovery" of the new world while examining our personal and collective beliefs on Columbus Day and the celebration of Columbus as our nation's first explorer. In doing so they will explain the European motivations for exploration, review a variety of available documents on the age of discovery, look at who lived in the "new world" upon discovery, and consider colonization from the perspective of indigenous populations.
