Historian Renata Keller provided historical perspective on the evolving Cuba-U.S. relationship.

British fellow Antony Stewart revealed a new discovery of a previously unknown diary hidden in the Library of Congress Alan Lomax Collection.

Jason Steinhauer explained why astrobiology matters to the humanities, and why astrobiology discoveries have the potential to reconfigure our assumptions about reality.

Mary Lou Reker recalled sharing time and space with Vaclav Havel, the small couch in his office, and the quiet conversations they had together.

Dan Turello interviewed Latin Americanist Charlotte Rogers about Brazil, the World Cup, and her research on contemporary South American fiction.
