EL Cuba Information Session: 10/22

Posted on October 18, 2018 | Filed under Events

There will be an information session regarding the EL trip to Cuba, a two-credit, two-week trip to the island, on Monday, October 22 at noon in Ruter 103. The trip introduces you to Cuba, its past and present, and our shared yet separate cultural legacies of colonialism and slavery, Cold War and capitalism, and baseball and the Beatles. We’ll examine what the 1959 Cuban Revolution meant and means for both of our nations. The itinerary invites students to view themselves as participants in the local community as a commodity (tourists) and as potential agents for change (as participants of the people-to-people exchanges lauded by the U.S. government as the force behind regime change in Cuba). The visit includes tours of historic sites in Havana and nearby provincial cities, beaches, forests and farms and volunteer and service learning activities with Cuban students and entrepreneurs. If you can’t make it and are interested, email Professor Riess (briess@allegheny.edu) or simply submit your application here.
