Havana, Jun 4 (Prensa Latina) The 43rd Conference of the Caribbean Studies Association (CSA) is opening today in this capital to assess progress and challenges of the region.

The Habana Libre Tryp Hotel is hosting the five-day forum that is attended by scholars from many parts of the world interested in academic and cultural issues of the Caribbean. The first keynote speech is given by Puerto Rican professor, Nelson Maldonado.

Among the issues under discussion during the 43rd CSA Conference are the Haitian and Cuban revolutions, climate change, music and the current regional situation.

In addition to keynote speeches, the forum’s program will include workshops, exhibitions, concerts and a Book Fair.

Under the main theme, Education, Culture and emancipatory thinking in the Caribbean, the meeting will join to the tribute to the University of Havana for its 290th anniversary.
