This course will explore these historical changes that had labeled Cuba as an island “lost in time” by focusing on three topics that are crucial for Cuba’s global acknowledgement: Gender, Race and Healthcare. Although these three topics can be separately considered, they are deeply interrelated and in constant exchange with Cuba’s economy and politics, as women and LGBT communities challenge their social participation, Afro-Cubans claim their space, and healthcare becomes threatened due to Cuba’s slow movement to globalization.
Students will be enrolled in INTL 4402 - Special Topics in International Studies Gender, Race and Healthcare in Contemporary Cuba, a four credit hour course for Spring 2019. For more information, go to: www.trinity.edu/studyabroad
