This past month, UCF’s Humberto López Cruz was honored as a keynote speaker at a conference on literature in Panama speaking on the novel El Lunar Eterno by Javier Riba Peñalba. His passion for the literature of the country was noticed and celebrated on his arrival in the country. He was called upon to represent its literature despite not being of Panamanian nationality. Dr. López was interviewed by La Prensa, a Panamanian publication, about his visit to the country and his thoughts on the future of literature from Panama.

López is the Interim Department Chair and professor in the Modern Languages and Literatures Department at UCF and his research concentrates on Panamanian literature.
