Cuba -- 9/14 Daypass - Past, Present, and Future
PLEASE NOTE: This lecture will start at 9:30 a.m. Donna Rich Kaplowitz received a BA in English and Latin American Studies from the University of Michigan and an MA and Ph.D. in Latin American Studies from Johns Hopkins University. Donna’s research interests have focused on U.S. policy towards Cuba, the U.S. embargo of Cuba, and the Cuban foreign policy. She has published widely and her book credits include: The Cuba Reader: The Making of a Revolution, The Anatomy of a Failed Embargo: U.S. Sanctions Against Cuba, and Cuba’s Ties to a Changing World. Speaker’s Synopsis: In this presentation, Professor Kaplowitz will share her personal experiences visiting Cuba over the past 33 years. From the vantage point of a young university graduate spending a summer with ordinary Cubans in the height of the Cold War to meeting Fidel Castro, she has had extraordinary access and insight into Cuban life, policy, and change. She will combine history, memoir, and commentary from her most recent trip to the island to share her thoughts on what’s next for our closest neighbor.
