  “Study Abroad in Havana, Cuba Fordham Spring Break 2015”

Cuba’s Contemporary Culture in Havana Havana, one of the world’s most historically significant and hauntingly beautiful cities, has long been the center of Cuban culture and an exporter of cultural forms to the rest of the world. This one-week one-credit spring study-tour course will explore the city’s vibrant contemporary cultural scene in music, art, dance, literature and film and give students a lived sense of the issues, topics and concerns addressed by contemporary Cuban artists in innovative new forms that respond both to local conditions of economic transition and to a globalized world market. In Havana, Casa de las Américas, the island’s premier cultural institute, will be our host and the city will be our classroom. Meetings in January and February prior to departure for the tour will introduce students to Cuban politics and history and prepare them to be knowledgeable guests. The
group will be led by Prof. Arnaldo Cruz-Malavé, Director of the Latin American and Latino Institute at Fordham University.
