A widely-published scholar, Delgado currently has two works in progress, “Fidel Castro and the Construction of a Revolutionary Ideology,” and “Kicking Around: Soccer America and the Persistence of a Soccer Culture in the U.S.”

This event is presented as part of the university’s Social Justice Series and is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Ashley Olsen, sociocultural coordinator, at ashley.e.olson@uwrf.edu or at 715-425-4444.
