Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University


Economy, Technology and Information Exchange is another area that the Stone Center will develop in partnership with the Payson Center for International Development and Technology Transfer, the Freeman School of Business, the School of Engineering, and the School of Public Health. Its members will focus on pressing issues brought about by the revolutions in technology, communication, and education that so profoundly influence governments, economies, and non-state actors on a global scale. The massive transfers of information, technology, and capital among Latin American nations and global actors produce dramatic new challenges as society must address the problem of the vast differences that exist between the industrialized and developing worlds.

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.
