DEVS 306/DEVS 307:  Cuban Culture and Society Courses

The DEVS course Cuban Culture and Society which, for the past 12 years, has taken Queen’s students to the University of Havana and invited Cuban professors and artists to Queen’s, has released a video.  Produced by former student Roy Zheng (currently an MA student in Cultural Studies), the seven minute video includes brief interviews with a range of students, and photos of many of the instructors, artists and excursion sites in Havana.  The course will be offered in 2020-2021 with an on-campus portion (DEVS 306) and, international travel permitting, a Havana portion in May (DEVS 307).  The video is a reminder, during this period of lockdown, of what we can learn when we have the opportunity to look beyond ourselves.
