With 2009 marking of the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, Queen’s University is proud to host a three-day international conference –“The Measure of a Revolution: Cuba, 1959-2009” in collaboration with Boston University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the University of Havana.
The “Measure of a Revolution” will be the only major conference during the 50th anniversary year of the Cuban Revolution that will provide an opportunity for scholars and policy makers from Canada, Cuba, the United States, and eleven other countries to discuss and engage with each other and the attending general public. With more than two hundred presentations by leading academics, policy-makers, artists and writers, the conference will address such diverse themes as culture, gender, the economy, environment, sexuality, politics, migration, race, education, health, religion, and international relations.
The conference will take place from May 7th to 9th, 2009 at Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario). Registration is now open for interested faculty, staff, students, and community members via our website: http://www.queensu.ca/sociology/?q=node/138. Register early as limited spaces are available.
There will also be a week long Cuba Festival in Kingston – 2 to 9 May – to mark both the Queen’s Conference and the twinning of the City of Kingston with the City of Cienfuegos in Cuba. Conference participants will be offered a discounted rate for selected events. Please visit www.cubafestkingston.ca for more details.
