Paul Ryer, Director of Scholar ProgramsTuesday, August 23, 2016August 23, 2016: We welcome Paul Ryer, our new Director of Scholar Programs

His research rethinks the imagined geographies of cubanidad, or Cubanness, arguing that in the Cuban vernacular, cubanidad rests uneasily between the scarcities of socialism and the consumer goods of the West, and that its contradictions and limits are distinctively exposed by the experiences and positioning of resident African-born, Cuban-educated students.
