Cuba Symposium: "Cuba Reconsidered: New Perspectives from Havana"

         Nov 9, 2012, 2pm EST

This summer, a group of nine Tufts University undergraduates traveled to 
Havana, Cuba for six weeks to study and conduct independent research at 
La Casa de las Americas, a subsidiary of University of Havana.

We would like to invite you to "Cuba Reconsidered: New Perspectives from 
Havana", a symposium where we will share some of our academic 
experiences with the Tufts community. We will present on our research, 
which covers topics including race, health, agriculture, economy and 
alternative energy in Cuba. We also have the great pleasure of hosting 
four Cuban academics we had the opportunity to work with this summer: 
Gloria Rolando, Tomas Robaina, Jorge Fornet and Roberto Zurbano. They 
will present on a range of topics pertaining to race, gender and 
cultural movements in Cuba. The goal of the symposium is to promote 
dialogue and learning about Cuba within the Tufts community.
