Celebrating its fifth year, Rollins College’s Winter Park Institute introduces world-renowned intellectuals and change-makers to the Central Florida community. Dr. Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran, discusses the relationship between politics, culture, and human rights in that country. She will emphasize the rights of women and girls and the role they play in the process of change for pluralism and an open society. Nafisi will participate in a book signing immediately following the discussion.
“For the past five years, the Winter Park Institute has delivered to the faculty, staff and students of Rollins College and our local community exceptional leaders and experts in a variety of disciplines from politics to filmmaking,” said Gail Sinclair, executive director of the Winter Park Institute. “We’re proud to be able to offer these programs as an extension of our commitment to promote high caliber intellectual discussion.”
