Husarik to speak
Stephen Husarik, professor of music and humanities at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith, will present a travel lecture on his recent trip to Peru titled “The University of Machu Picchu.” The lecture presentation will take place at 7:30 p.m. July 11 in Room 105 of the Breedlove Building on the UAFS campus.
Husarik spent a week traveling to Cusco and Inca sites in the Peruvian valley before reaching the celebrated Machu Picchu, now labeled one of the “Wonders of the Modern World.”
Husarik will talk briefly about travel in general, how to prepare for a trip of this type and his experiences at the ancient Incan sites. An inveterate traveler, Husarik will discuss all of his techniques used for ambitious trips such as this one and the knowledge he gained about the Incas and Machu Picchu.
