The Latin American Studies Program at Pomona College is conducting a self-study and has appointed Dr. Jorge Duany as one of three outside reviewers of its program. Dr. Duany will travel to Claremont, California, on February 14–17, 2018, to visit the Pomona College campus and prepare a written report summarizing the reviewers' evaluation of the program, to be submitted within five weeks of the visit. The program will send the reviewers a copy of its own internal self-study document before their arrival on campus. During their visit, the reviewers will meet with faculty members, administrators, and students.
A Professor in FIU's Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies, Jorge Duany holds a Ph.D. in Latin American Studies, specializing in anthropology, from the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to directing FIU's Cuban Research Institute, he is affiliated with the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center. His research and teaching have focused on Caribbean and Latin American cultures and societies, particularly on migration from the Hispanic Caribbean to the United States.
