“Changes in Cuba: the Evolution of the US-Cuban Relationship:” April 11 @ 4pm

The School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs is sponsoring a lecture by Dr. Julia Sweig from the Council on Foreign Relations on Thursday April 11 at 4 pm in the Wells Fargo Auditorium (School of Business).  The lecture is titled, “ Changes in Cuba: the Evolution of the US-Cuban Relationship.”   Dr. Sweig is one of the foremost authorities on contemporary Cuba and we are most fortunate to have her on campus.

She is the Nelson and David Rockefeller senior fellow for Latin American Studies at the Council and the author Cuba: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford University Press, 2009, 2013) and Friendly Fire: Losing Friends and Making Enemies in the Anti-American Century (Public Affairs, 2006), as well as numerous publications on Latin America and American foreign policy. Dr. Sweig’s Inside the Cuban Revolution: Fidel Castro and the Urban Underground (Harvard University Press, 2002) received the American Historical Association’s Herbert Feis Award for best book of the year by an independent scholar. She also writes a bi-weekly column for Folha de Sao Paulo, Brazil’s leading newspaper. She holds a B.A. from the University of California and a M.A. and Ph. D. from Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.

Dr. Lola Colomina-Garrigos, Hispanic Studies Department The transition from an industrial economy to an information and networked economy has profound implications for entire industries.  New business models will emerge on the back of disru…ptive technological advances and organizational structures and the nature of many jobs will change. The “big data” revolution is leading systems that, thanks to tracking every detail of your past, could predict your future habits and health—or help you avoid traffic accidents or paying too much for airfare. In this interactive session we will explore a few of these emerging  predictive mobile applications.
