CLTR 1508 - Cuban History and Culture through Film
Offers an overview to Cuban history, culture, and society using a variety of films. Begins with the eighteenth century and issues of colonialism, slavery, and the struggle to create an independent Cuba. Features the early period of independence (1902–1925) and the overthrow of Machado (1933), as it is a period of great change and questioning about the island’s cultural and national identity. The latter part of the course focuses on post-1959 Cuba. Topics include colonialism and slavery, the pitfalls of national consciousness, gender relations, the mulatta in Cuba’s national culture, race relations, the importance of music in Cuban identity, aspects of Afro-Cuban culture, the nature of underdevelopment, homosexuality, social and political concerns in a revolutionary society, and Cuba in a new globalized environment.
