The 2011 Society for the Humanities Annual Invitational Lecture featured Roberto Sierra, the Old Dominion Professor of Composition at Cornell, performing "Robert Schumann and the Caribbean: analytic view and performance of Sch. for piano four hands by Roberto Sierra," with the participation of Miri Yampolsky and Xak Bjerken.

The Annual Invitational Lecture of the Society for the Humanities is designed to give a Cornell audience a chance to hear one of our distinguished faculty members, who may frequently speak at other universities but whom we seldom have the privilege of hearing.
