Please join Northwestern University's Latin American & Caribbean Studies Program for this talk by Julio César Guanche, a legal and political historian of modern Cuba whose work focuses on republicanism, populism, and constitutional law.

Guanche is the Roberta Buffett Visiting Professor of International Studies in the Department of History at Northwestern this fall, where he is teaching two classes: a graduate seminar on Law, Liberty and Revolution in the Caribbean and an undergraduate course on Independence, Social Change and Revolution in Cuba.

He is the former deputy director of the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema in Havana and has taught at universities in Cuba, Ecuador, Spain, and the United States. His recent publications include a citizenship report about Cuba for the Global Citizenship Observatory (GLOBALCIT) and a chapter on constitutionalism in Cuba for The Oxford Handbook of Constitutional Law in Latin America (2020).

His current project examines the ideas, conflicts, actors, and repertoires of control and contestation that revolve around the pillars of a democratic understanding of republicanism. He blogs at LA COSA.
