CUBA LIBRE: HISTORY, SOCIETY, AND CULTURE OF A UNIQUE ISLAND NATION

Cuba Learning Abroad 2
 
The Program
This seminar with travel to Cuba’s capital city will study the urban setting of Havana in its articulation with literature, film, and the arts from the early twentieth century to the present day. It will explore cross-disciplinary continuities, the engagement with multiple pasts, the city as a meeting place for all the arts and crucible of social identities. The group’s time in Havana will include visits to various art and history museums (Museo de Bellas Artes, Museo de Arte Colonial, “Fusterlandia” [modern art community installation], José Martí museum, Museo de la Revolución), and will also include visits to several community development projects sponsored by the Office of the Historian in Havana (hosted by Dr. Felix Alfonso, Vice Dean of San Geronimo College and associate director of the Office of the Historian). The group will also take two day trips outside of Havana, one to the UNESCO world heritage site at Las Terrazas, which includes both a restored 18th century coffee plantation and a protected forest; and the other to Hershey town, the site of a former sugar plantation, mill, and “company town” built by U.S. confectioner Milton Hershey in 1916.
