Description
Department of History professor Michael Huner will present Finding (or Not) the Mystery of Life in the Heart and Kidney of South America.

Fleeting and sometimes painful or enlightening interactions, involving bribes, brothels, a shattered leg, and the blood-curdling growls of howler monkeys, all mark this young professors ongoing journey to find out what it really meant to live ordinary and extraordinary lives in nineteenth-century Paraguay.
