U.S. – Cuban relations have dominated the international news since December. Under Raul Castro, Cuba is changing rapidly. Restored diplomatic ties and a visit by President Obama, the first American president to travel there since the 1920’s make it seem like all is ready for change. Congressional resistance to lifting sanctions and Fidel Castro’s response to Obama’s visit with an anti-American protest letter on state media, saying: ‘We don’t need the empire to give us any presents” remind us that change still has many costs as well as benefits.

What can we expect from the people and the regime just 90 miles from America’s shore?

Tuesday, May 17th, Dr. Paul Ryer, UCR anthropologist, who has been studying Cuban identity both inside Cuba and among those who have fled or migrated, has seen the changes first hand. He will share his experiences and insights and answer of our questions.
