Thanks to a small grant from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Rose T. Caraway, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, traveled to Cuba in January with 22 other delegates on the Food First “Transforming Food Production in Cuba” program.

Caraway visited local farms in several provinces in order to see first-hand the innovative ecological techniques being used in order to promote sustainable development and food sovereignty on the island. She is currently researching the spiritual dimensions of Cuban permaculture ethics, a holistic system of sustainable development that promotes the creation of just and equitable human and natural ecologies.

Caraway has traveled to Cuba for the past twelve years, and is deeply committed to promoting cross-cultural understanding between the United States and Cuba during this historic moment of opening diplomatic relations.
