People to People Citizen Ambassador Programs is organizing a delegation of specialists in anthropology to travel to Cuba in January 2015. The delegation leader is Dr. Laura Graham, Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Iowa, and we hope for a strong showing of anthropologists.
A number of unique opportunities are planned, including dialogue with anthropology professionals in Cuba, and the opportunity to share techniques, training and anthropology principles. Cultural activities will highlight the sights and sounds of the country. You can find more information at www.PeopletoPeople.com/LauraGraham.
Travel to Cuba for U.S. citizens is very limited. Under license (CT-2013-305247-1) by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control, you can legally visit Cuba with Ambassador Programs, Inc. (People to People Ambassador Programs) if adhering to the guidelines outlined on the delegation’s website.
