    The main theme for Kennesaw State University’s Year of Cuba International Conference invites interdisciplinary approaches to the multiple, enriching, and conflicting intersections taking place in this country. This forum serves as a platform to engage in scholarly conversations that will contribute to understanding the complexities of Cuba, generating new forms of engagement and learning, and appreciating the many forms of Cuban’s resiliency and contributions to the world.
