Program Overview

Program Description:

 

This study abroad program will allow students the possibility to explore Cuba in a moment of transition. Cuba's unique political and economic history has long made it the subject of intense intellectual debate. The recent announcement of a "normalization" of relations between the US and Cuba and the subsequent reopening of embassies have Cubans, along with the rest of the world, creating expectations about what changes the future will bring. The program is centered in the city of Havana, designated a UNSCO World Heritage site in 1982, and will also include travel to other cultural patrimony sites. Throughout the program, we will think through the heterogeneous ways in which Cubans narrate their own history, challenges, and triumphs, as well as how the foreign gaze has contributed to their reframing.  The program will be conducted in English, knowledge of Spanish is useful but not required.
