In New York City, the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University will be hosting a three-day, invitation-only conference designed to deepen journalists’ reporting on a wide range of issues involving Cuba and Cuban-American relations at a critical moment of transition.
On October 16-18, 2014, the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University will be hosting a conference entitled, “Covering Cuba in an Era of Change,” on the Columbia campus in New York City.
This invitation-only conference is designed to deepen journalists’ reporting on a wide range of issues involving Cuba and Cuban-American relations at a critical moment of transition. “Covering Cuba in an Era of Change” will explore the country’s history and relationship to the United States, recent shifts in public opinion, generational changes in Cuban-America immigrant communities, economic factors, as well as current conflicts and policy debates. Sessions will focus on Cuba’s economy, public health innovation in Cuba and abroad, human rights and free expression, environmental issues and prospects for reform.
The conference will include expert briefings and panels by historians, scholars, economists, policymakers and community leaders, as well as journalist-to-journalist discussions on innovations and challenges involved in reporting on Cuba in this key period.
