In 1998, the Universities of Wolverhampton and Havana jointly inaugurated the dedicated research network called the Forum for the Study of Cuba/Cátedra de Estudios sobre Cuba, based in Wolverhampton.
In 2003, the Forum was transferred to the University of Nottingham and, in 2004, was renamed the Cuba Research Forum. It is based in, and managed by, the University’s Centre for Research on Cuba.
There are four categories of membership
Membership is by invitation, but anyone may ask to be enrolled. Enquiries can be made to the Centre for Research on Cuba.
The core event of the Forum is the annual bilateral conference, alternating between Nottingham and Havana. These conferences have taken place since 1998, and generally take place in Cuba in early July and Nottingham in early September.
The Forum also organises a one-day postgraduate workshop every academic year (usually in February/March), each time focussing on a specific topic (e.g. interviewing in Cuba, Cuban responses to research on Cuba, applying theory and methodology to Cuba, etc.). This workshop is open to any postgraduate working on Cuba in Europe.
The Forum is managed by the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Research on Cuba, through its Management Committee. For that purpose, two Cuban colleagues are members of that Committee:
