By special permission of the U.S. Dept of Treasury, Princeton Journeys can offer Americans the chance to interact with Cubans in Cuba.
Stanley N. Katz will serve as Princeton Study Leader for this program. Formerly Class of 1921 Bicentennial Professor of the History of American Law and Liberty at Princeton University, Katz currently holds the title of Lecturer with the rank of Professor in Public and International Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School and is the director of the University’s Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies. Katz is a specialist on American legal and constitutional history and on philanthropy and nonprofit institutions, and his recent research focuses upon the relationship of civil society and constitutionalism to democracy, and upon the relationship of the United States to the international human rights regime.
His interest in and involvement with Cuba is extensive and deep. He has long served as the chair of the Working Group on Cuba, a joint initiative of the American Council of Learned Societies and the Social Science Research Council. A leader of Princeton undergraduate courses in Havana for the last few years, he is one of only two Corresponding Members of the Academy of Sciences of Cuba to hail from the U.S.
