Call for Research Presentations
Cuba at the Crossroads is symposium organized by the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program at Rollins College. We invite academics and researchers to submit proposals on themes related to current domestic issues in Cuba, Cuba/US relations, or Cuban foreign relations. Research presentations can explore a wide range of topics that inform about the current state of Cuban society and analyze possible future transformations. We expect presentations to promote dialogue about the changing relationship between Cuba, the United States, and other nations.
The symposium will be held on Friday, February 10, 2017 at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida.
Possible topics can include:

  • Healthcare policy and practice
  • Caribbean/Latin American perspectives
  • Economic reform
  • Cuba politics (domestic and foreign)
  • Cubans living outside Cuba
  • Civil society, state-society relations
  • Human Rights
  • Technology and cyberspace
  • Tourism
  • Fine Arts
  • Literature
  • Cinema
  • Culture and Identity
  • NGOs
  • Business and Entrepreneurship
