The Cuban Research Institute, the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center, and the FIU Libraries are pleased to request applications from scholars and graduate students for the spring and early summer 2019. The Díaz-Ayala Library Travel Grants provide the opportunity to conduct research in the special collections and archives related to Cuba and Cuban Americans at the FIU Libraries.
According to the 2018 FIU Cuba Poll, the longest-running research project measuring Cuban-American public opinion, Cuban Americans in Miami are now evenly split on support for the U.S. embargo of Cuba—a striking contrast to the 2016 poll, where only 37 percent of those surveyed expressed support for the policy. This is the first Cuba Poll conducted since the midterms and the first since President Donald J. Trump took office.
Agence France Presse notes that the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution marks the first time it was held without a Castro in power.
