Perspectives on Cuba in the 21st Century
CLACS Summer Teacher Institute
July 10-12, 2017
Join us as we discuss Cuba in the 21st Century. How does the death of Fidel Castro and the easing of U.S. trade and travel by the Obama administration free Cuba of some of the orthodoxies that has defined it for the past fifty years? While the focus of the workshop will be on how Cubans are constructing their own future, the role of external actors, such as Cuban Exiles and U.S. politicians, will be examined.
The workshop is a collaboration between the Florida International University (FIU) Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center, UW-Whitewater, UW-Madison Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies (LACIS) and the UW-Milwaukee Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS).
