Cuban Culture and Society is a full 6.0 undergraduate course. It is part of an exchange agreement between Queen’s and the University of Havana, and has been offered since 2008. The aim is to introduce students to some of the main events and highlights of Cuban society, history, politics and culture, with a focus on the period from the Cuban revolution (1959) to the present.
The course is approximately four weeks long, held in the Spring session. For the first two weeks , we will meet in a seminar grouping at Queen's and follow a structured reading list. The last two weeks of the course will take place at the University of Havana in Cuba.
This course will be taught by an interdisciplinary team: Karen Dubinsky (Global Development Studies/History) and Susan Lord (Film and Media Studies). In Havana, the course translator is Zaira Zarza (PhD student, Cultural Studies)
