Director of SAR’s scholar programs, Paul Ryer, shares stories from his research into what it means to be Cuban and how residents of Cuba perceive the world and their role in it.
Guest contributor and SAR board member Diane Stanley Vennema shares her reflections on a recent SAR international field trip to Brazil led by archaeologist Anna Roosevelt and SAR president Michael F. Brown. As Brown notes, “When SAR organizes field trips, we recruit experts who can lead our members beneath the surface and deep into the places we visit to reach a more profound understanding of local history and culture. Many of these experts are SAR alumni, former scholars whose work has benefited from their time on our campus. Anna Curtenius Roosevelt is one such scholar.”
