Dr. Alfred ?G. ?Cuzán, Distinguished University Professor of Political Science, teaches primarily American and ?comparative ?politics. Born in Havana, Cuba, Cuzán can trace his interest in political science to January 7, 1959: the day Fidel Castro triumphantly rode into Havana after ?Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista fled the country. Two years later, when Castro’s plans to establish a Soviet-style communist regime became evident, ?Cuzán and his family immigrated to Miami. During his 40-year ?academic career (all but four of those spent at UWF), ?Cuzán? has been awarded numerous grants and fellowships. During this class, Dr. Cuzán will discuss and take questions on some topics of contemporary interest.
