Historias 8 - Greg Weeks

What might the rise of Miguel Díaz-Canel to the Cuban presidency mean for Cuban-U.S. relations and for Cuba itself?

 

In this Historias hot take edition complete with a B side, Dr. Gregory Weeks speaks with Carlos and Steven about the uses of soft and hard power, the transition in Cuba, and how none of us should try to predict the future.

 

On the B-side, Greg discusses SECOLAS’ peer-reviewed journal The Latin Americanist and Steven learns about Peruvian ants.
