This is the second in a five-part spring seminar series “Latin America at the Crossroads” sponsored by the Center for Inter-American Policy & Research and the Stone Center at Tulane.

Future events will focus on Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela.

Events begin at 4pm in the Greenleaf Conference Room, 100A Jones Hall, with a reception following, and are free and open to the public, but RSVP is required. For more information and to reserve your seat, please contact CIPR at cipr@tulane.edu or phone 504.862.3141

K-14 Summer Educator Institute in Cuba

View Full Event Description

Havana, Cuba | June 17 – July 1, 2017

The Application Deadline has Passed
$3,500.00 for 15 days

This two-week program through the Stone Center for Latin American Studies, Cuban and Caribbean Studies, and in collaboration with Primary Source provides the unique opportunity to work on developing lesson plans while exploring the sights and sounds of a nation and country that remain obscured behind political rhetoric and misinformation. Recent economic changes on the island have provoked a series of social and cultural transformations that have left Cubans and the entire world wondering what could be next for the island and the Revolution. Don’t miss the chance to witness some of these challenges and triumphs firsthand and get the opportunity to bring your experience back to your students in the classroom.

Tulane’s summer program is locally sponsored and supported by the National Union of Writers and Artists. Participants will stay within walking distance of the Malecón, the university, and several cultural venues. In addition to field trips in Havana, there will also be group excursions to the historic cities of Trinidad and Cienfuegos, the Che Guevara monument in Santa Clara, Playa Girón, and Viñales.
