Course Description: This course will discuss the vexed relationship between Cuba and the United States of America through the exploration of imperialism, reform, and revolution. The study of the relationship between these two nations-states serves as a case study for understanding transnational processes and the role of political economy, geopolitics, social struggle, and the role of nationalism, race, class, gender, and sexuality in shaping Latinx societies and cultures both in the homelands and in the diaspora.
