Dear Terry,

Join The Nation November 12 – 19 as we travel to Cuba to experience the people, politics, culture, and history of the island in a way very few have before. We will spend our days meeting with prominent Cuban professors, government officials, physicians, community activists, farmers, urban planners, business owners, journalists, and artists. Our evenings will be filled with exclusive concerts by renowned musicians, private showings at artists's studios, and performances by students of Cuba's internationally acclaimed dance institutes.

We will tour museums with eminent art historians, wander through the artists's markets of Old Havana, experience the scenic beauty of Pinar del Río province, and savor traditional Cuban food and spirits at the island's finest restaurants and organic farms.

We will be accompanied throughout the week by Cuba expert Katrin Hansing. Katrin is the former associate director of the Cuban Research Institute at Florida International University in Miami and is currently Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at Baruch College (CUNY). As an anthropologist she has spent the last thirteen years conducting research in the Caribbean (especially Cuba). Dr. Hansing received her Ph.D. from the University of Oxford and is the author of numerous publications including the book Rasta, Race, and Revolution: The Emergence and Development of the Rastafari Movement in Socialist Cuba.
