Cuba Talk. Estado del Debate en Cuba 

HIA is delighted to host two scholars from the University of Havana, Yohanka León del Río and Felix Valdes García.  After months of (customary) delay, the State Department granted them and a small contingent of Cuban scholars visas to attend the LASA meetings this week.  
Their talk will examine critical theory, liberation movements, and contemporary thought in Cuba.  It will be in Spanish but the discussion will be in English and Spanish.  Please join us next Wednesday. If you'd like an opportunity to meet with them, please let me know. They will be on campus Tuesday-Wednesday-and Thursday.  
Special thanks to Education Abroad Center, Anthropology, History, Philosophy, and Spanish and Portuguese for supporting this late-breaking event.

The Hemispheric Institute on the Americas is an interdisciplinary group bringing together faculty and graduate students that focus on the study of transnational processes in the American Hemisphere.

Our Goal includes promoting research to challenge the boundaries of disciplinary specialization and culture area studies, exploring the connections throughout the social, cultural, and economic landscape of the Western Hemisphere from an array of perspective and redirecting and redefining the study of Latin America from a broadly hemispheric viewpoint.
