Study the history and contemporary significance of the Cuban Revolution while living and traveling in Cuba. Students will read historical narratives, watch Cuban films, meet with Cuban scholars and students, and immerse themselves in daily life to develop their own interpretations of Cuba’s revolutionary tradition. What historical forces and circumstances led to the Cuban Revolution? How did participants, bystanders, and detractors experience the upheaval, and how have they struggled over its meaning and memory? How did the revolution impact hemispheric affairs and global politics? What does the future hold for Cuba and its revolutionary tradition? The group will spend three weeks in Havana—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—before embarking on a ten-day road trip across the island to Santiago de Cuba, the self-proclaimed ‘City of Revolutionaries’.
