“CAS AA306E/CFA MH563 – Experiencing Cuba: History, Culture and Politics” will take place March 9-16th, 2024. The trip will count as one credit and will be led by Professor Michael Birenbaum Quintero and AFAMBDS Staff. The Course is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. You must have sophomore standing or higher in order to participate.
Cuba has a rich history with a vibrant contemporary culture, making it an important site for study of the African Diaspora in Latin America, and seeing the complicated place of race and the role of culture in a socialist society. Students explore African and Cuban music, art, and religion both historically and today by engaging directly with Cuban artists, academics, and citizens, to gain a deeper understanding of the local, international, and transnational processes that shaped and continue to shape this unique society.
