The GO Cuba program will explore the complex culture that melds its Spanish colonial origins with a century of social, political, economic and cultural influence from the United States and the resulting 50 years of diplomatic Cold War and tension after the 1959 Revolution. As the door between our two countries begins to open, as students, you will be able to meet Cubans and learn directly from them about their culture and their hopes and concerns about the increasing social, political and cultural U.S. influence once again. 2SH.CC: Cross-Cultural.
