Chester Himes spent more than sixteen years in Spain after having passed a decade further north in France. Five of his late works were published while he resided in Moraira-Teulada. Reading Himes's 1955 novel, The End of a Primitive, against documentary evidence revealing Himes's complex relationship with his adopted home, this presentation examines both the author's revolt against racial liberalism as well as his vexed relationship to his unlikely success.
Both the Business major and the Public Health: Health, Behavior, and Society (HBS) major now have Peer Advisers. For information, go to the Peer Advisers web page.
