This course explores the historical changes that have labeled Cuba as an island "lost in time" by focusing on three topics that are crucial for Cuba's global acknowledgement: gender, race and healthcare. These topics are deeply interrelated and in constant exchange with Cuba's economy and politics, as women and LGBT communities challenge their social participation, Afro-Cubans claim their space, and healthcare becomes threatened due to Cuba's slow movement to globalization. (Offered every other year.) Prerequisites: SPAN 2301 and Consent of Instructor
