Cuba: From Revolution to Globalization

June 18 – 29, 2014

Students have a unique opportunity to learn about Cuba through this study program in summer 2014. As a participant in the course, you will engage in an active daily program of study, with visits to museums, art galleries, and sites of historic and cultural significance. You will encounter the vibrancy of Havana and its surroundings while exploring the cultural, historical and political landscape through conversations with local people and lectures from local experts. From this experience, and the course work you complete, you will gain an understanding of Cuba’s special place on the world stage, and an appreciation of the rich cultural background of this close Caribbean neighbor.

To prepare for the field program, students are required to complete Cuban Society, Culture and Politics through Film, an online course spring term, 2014 which will introduce students to present-day Cuba through documentaries, popular films, and accompanying reading.
