Cuba ( Havana) – Cuban Culture and Society
Since 1997, Tulane’s Summer in Cuba program has offered undergraduate students a unique opportunity for an in-depth learning experience in our closest Caribbean neighbor. Based in Havana, Cuba’s vibrant capital and the cultural and economic center of the island, the program provides participants with accommodations in the heart of the city – offering many opportunities for language and cultural immersion outside the classroom. Classes are hosted by the University of Havana, an internationally prestigious Cuban academic institution. Course offerings include: Afro-Cuban Heritage: History and Culture, Cuban Culture and Society, Urban Landscape: Imagining Havana, Spanish, and Cuban Literature. With the exception of Spanish language studies and the Cuban Literature course, all classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted and are complemented by readings and field trips. This program is sponsored by the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute of the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. Please note that this program has been temporarily discontinued as of June 30, 2004. For more information, please consult the Programs in Cuba page at the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute web site.
Cuba (Havana) – International Public Health
This summer program is open to graduate students seeking on-site experience with public health issues in developing countries. The course will expose students to multiple aspects of the Cuban health system. It will take place in the unique social and political environment of Havana, and involve daily lectures by various health authorities in the country, and several visits to important sites relevant to the health system. It will challenge students to critically evaluate current issues in Cuban development that affect its population’s health status. In addition, students will gain an applied understanding of the current methods used to measure social change within Cuba. Contact Prof. Katherine Macintyre (email@example.com) in the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine for more information. Please note that this program has been temporarily discontinued as of June 30, 2004.
The Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies are pleased to offer students the opportunity to study in the Dominican Republic during a three-week summer program. Participating students will have a unique opportunity to observe and study the history, culture, social structures, institutions, and landscape (built and natural) of the Dominican Republic in the context of the Caribbean. Guest lectures by local specialists in conjunction with extensive field trips throughout the country will enhance the two courses offered, Dominican Culture and Society in a Caribbean Context and Urban Forms and Vernacular Landscapes in the Caribbean. Classes will be held in different locations throughout the Dominican Republic and students will be housed in hotels throughout the island. Associate Provost Ana López , who is also the director of the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute, will lead the program. A faculty member of the LAS Communication department, Prof. López’s research focuses on Latin American and Caribbean film and popular culture. The co-director of the program is Prof. Mark Thomas, who teaches historical preservation and landscape architecture in the Tulane School of Architecture. Please note that this program will not be available in summer 2008, but will be offered again in upcoming years.
Peru (Norte Chico Region) – Archaeology and Cultural History
Through Tulane’s Archaeological Program in Peru, the Stone Center for Latin American Studies offers students the opportunity to study in the Norte Chico region of Peru, an area that has gained recent fame for its prehistoric complexity and late Chimu occupation. The recent discovery of early evidence of social complexity in the region, dating to approximately 2900 years ago, makes this an ideal time for students to explore this prehistoric culture . El Norte Chico region is located 200 kilometers north of Lima, the nation’s capital, and is famous not only for its early monumental architecture, but also for its impressive Chimu occupation that includes large walled fortresses. As part of this archaeological field school, students will be exposed to the prehistoric Peruvian cultures that once occupied this area and will be taught archaeological field survey methods and analysis techniques. Kit Nelson, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Tulane University and a specialist in the late Pre-ceramic and Early Initial Period of Peru, leads the program. Please consult the Summer in Peru website or contact the Stone Center’s Summer Program Coordination Office at the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. Please note that this program will not be available in summer 2008.

The substantial body of literature addresses the growth of transnational regulatory networks that purport to foster learning, legitimacy, and coordination among national regulatory agencies. But network membership is neither universal nor well understood. Are regulators more likely to go abroad when they are vulnerable to domestic political pressure, or when their independence and influence are intact?
Art Exhibit: Maya Ruins and the Passage of Time: The Stephens and Catherwood Project

The talk will be held in Spanish. A short reception will follow.
¿Se puede considerar a la primera guerra mundial como un conflicto latinoamericano? Cuando abordamos esta pregunta en apariencia irrisoria desde la perspectiva de la historia literaria y cultural, emerge un archivo latinoamericano de experimentos estéticos sobre la guerra que interroga su mundialidad y el lugar de la cultura latinoamericana en el contexto de la globalización de la cultura moderna, De Darío a Nervo, de Gómez Carrillo a Alejandro Sux, muchos escritores modernistas presenciaron la guerra desde muy cerca y desde muy lejos, pero siempre tratando de achicar la distancia geopolítica que los separaba de la escena bélica a partir de una compleja identificación discursiva con la empresa de los aliados. Esta necesidad de suturar la distancia que los separa de las trincheras del frente occidental pone en evidencia el campo de fuerzas simbólicas y afectivas que se constituye a partir de los intentos de los modernistas por inscribir su proyecto estético en un escenario transcultural que ellos mismos invisten con significantes universales.
Le voyage des mots: Comparaison des lexiques naturalistes des langues tupi-guarani (Amérique du Sud)
The Center for Scholars, the Department of French and Italian, and the Linguistics Program of Tulane University cordially invite you to attend a lecture in French by a distinguished specialist on the family of Tupi-Guarani languages.
Dr. Françoise Grenand is an anthropologist and Emeritus Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, French National Research Council) of France. She is renowned for her pioneering work on the vocabulary of Wayãpi and other indigenous languages in French Guiana and elsewhere in lowland South America, including Brazil. Dr. Grenand will lecture on Tupi-Guarani languages and vocabularies based on her many years of research among the Wayãpi people of French Guiana. She will present a Powerpoint in English to accompany her lecture, which will be delivered in French.
Au cours de leur histoire, de nombreux peuples ont migré, emportant avec eux leur langue, trésor précieux et fragile. Découvrant des écosystèmes inédits, ils ont dû s'adapter et intégrer dans leur langue des mots nouveaux pour nommer les entités nouvelles. Prenant l'exemple des peuples Tupi-Guarani d'Amérique du Sud, la présente conférence entend expliquer leur démarche dans les lexiques zoologiques et botaniques. Des termes immotivés sont les témoins précieux des migrations anciennes. Des termes motivés descripteurs restent souvent neutres et de moindre portée. Motivés ou non, un certain nombre de termes, porteurs d’une grande charge sociétale, sont intéressants dans la comparaison linguistique et culturelle.
