Julio César Guanche Zaldívar, a renowned legal and political historian of modern Cuba, joins the Northwestern community in spring 2019 as the Roberta Buffett Visiting Professor of International Studies. He will give the annual Buffett Lecture.

Guanche’s work focuses on republicanism, populism, and constitutional law. In a current project, he is studying the ideas, conflicts, actors, and repertoires of control and contestation that revolve around the pillars of a democratic understanding of republicanism. Learn more.
