The Casa de Iberoamerica is sponsoring its thirteenth Congress of Ideas October 25 and 27, 2018 in the Cuban city of Holguin. It attracts about 300 academics and writers from universities all over Cuba, with a preponderance from Holguin, Santiago, Havana, Villa Clara and Ciego de Avila. The Congress offers a strong intellectual anchor for a faculty led trip and an opportunity to develop collaboration with new schools and academic disciplines. Paper presentations are grouped in six Forums: Sociodemographic studies; Hispanic Migratory Processes and National Identity; Culture, Tourism and Sustainable Development; Social Thought and National Identity; Gender Studies; Cultural Groups and Artistic Processes Registration information and suggested paper topics are here http://www.casadeiberoamerica.cu/convocatorias/52-xiii-ibero-american-congress-of-thought (Registration for the conference and associated costs other than housing totals approximately $150.)

Daily flights to Holguin are available on Jet Blue from Ft. Lauderdale and American Airlines from Miami. After the Congress, the Fund for Reconciliation and Development will lead an historical familiarization visit to Santiago, Guantanamo and Baracoa, including a seminar about the US base and a visit to Caimanera, the closest Cuban town.
