Bennion Center - Cuba: Complexity, Community, and Change
The complexities of Cuba cannot be understated. It is an historically isolated country trapped both gloriously and sadly in time. The U.S. Economic Embargo has taken its toll on the people of Cuba since the 1960's. This community engaged learning abroad course invites students to take a scholarly exploration of Cuba-- its history, culture, social, and civic life-- through community engagement. Students will build community both with each other and with community partners based in Havana. We will learn about the evolving diplomatic relations with the U.S and the rest of the world, the daily issues facing Cuban families and society, the many misconceptions regarding the political dynamics of Cuba, and the rich scientific, literary, musical, scholarly, and cultural treasures that Cuba offers students and visitors.
