ANTHR-155F Anthropology of Cuba: Cuban Society Through the Eyes of Cubans
3 - 3 Units SC
Credit - Degree Applicable
Variable Hours
 
Recommended: Eligibility for ENGL 122 or equivalent
This is a survey of Cuban culture and society that examines the effects of the Cuban revolution, international politics, and globalization on Cuban society and its people. To do this, students will apply techniques involved in anthropological field work and participant observation to learn about the goals and aspirations of Cubans. The goal is for students to meet individual Cubans in all walks of life and learn about the changes that have taken place in their lives in the last five decades. The course examines cultural systems such as gender roles, sexual attitudes, marriage and family, education, religion, political organization, the arts and the media. It investigates how Cubans feel about their revolution, new directions for the future, and the prospect of being modernized and immersed in U.S. global culture. At the same time, students will consider whether Cuban systems offer valuable lessons to the U.S. For example, how can the U.S. learn to consider the socio-economic developments inherent in post revolutionary Cuba as valid choices and alternatives to our own way of life? Finally, we will examine how Cuba has influenced and been influenced by social revolutions in Latin America, the Middle East and Africa? CSU
