Coffee Break with the Profs featuring Ben Ortiz

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 12:15am to 1:10pm

Goldwin Smith Hall, English Lounge (258 Goldwin Smith Hall)
232 East Ave, Central Campus

Ben Ortiz is the Assistant Curator of the Cornell Hip Hop Collection, which is part of Cornell University Library's Rare and Manuscript Collections division. The CHHC is the world's most extensive research archive on Hip Hop music and culture (a very broad subject through which a wide diversity of topics can be explored). In addition to his position with Cornell Hip Hop Collection, Ben is also active in the local music scene, and can be found rocking dance floors as his alter ego, DJ ha-MEEN. 

Coffee Break with the Profs (formerly called Books Sandwiched In) is a monthly lunch series for Cornell undergraduates, designed to bring faculty and undergraduate students together in an informal and cozy setting to discuss literature. You need not be an English Major to attend. Join in this informal discussion with faculty, meet other students interested in literature, and get free coffee, too!

This series is sponsored by the Department of English
