London and Stratford – WGS

Stratford-panoramic-view1

This section of this course examines the relationships between the US Suffrage Movement and the British Suffrage Movement. In the early 20th century the US woman suffrage movement took a more radical and aggressive turn as young leaders, such as Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, came to prominence in the movement.  These young women learned these tactics from their experiences as protégés of the leaders of the English movement, the Pankhursts.  Designed as a faculty led study abroad experience, this course will allow students to explore the ideological and logistical roots of the US Suffrage Movement by studying the English Suffrage Movement. Learning experiences will focus on classroom lectures/discussions, museum exhibits, visits to historical sites of importance to the movement and the possibility of archival research.

Course Description:

In The Art and Culture of Cuba, students will study significant monuments, museum collections, and other cultural sites in the city of Havana and in Central Cuba. As the course progresses, students will immerse themselves in the city of Havana and environs; they will visit neighborhoods of cultural and historic import, view renowned examples of architecture, study works of art that are housed in its collections, and attend music and dance performances. Several excursions are planned from Havana including historic Matanzas Province—the “Athens of Cuba,” bastion of the sugar industry, and the port of pirates. Students will travel on a round-trip charter flight to Havana from Miami; at the end of the program, students will spend two days in Miami to visit Cuban immigrant neighborhoods, partake in Cuban cultural experiences, and reflect on the Miami-Cuba connection. Cultural destinations and events will be planned daily.
