dc.description.abstract PROGRAM OF STUDY The Institute’s 4-week program of study will be organized according to the three principal elements that make up this extraordinary history. First, participants will come to know the history of the immigrant communities of Ybor City and Key West during the last two decades of the 19th century, their origins, settlement, rapid growth, and the novel forms of civil society they created, blending old world traditions with the new economic and social realities of their adopted nation. All aspects of these communities will be explored, including political activism, labor strife, social organization, and cultural production. Secondly, the Institute will focus on two key aspects of the life and work of José Martí: his role in establishing the Cuban Revolutionary Party among the cigar workers of Tampa and Key West, and his place among the great U.S. chroniclers of the Gilded Age. Special emphasis will be placed on the enormous influence these immigrant communities had on Martí’s formulation of a national identity –Patria–, and on his unique and revealing analysis of U.S. government and society. Thirdly, the Institute will examine the rationale for the U.S. intervention in the struggle for Cuban independence and analyze the far-reaching consequences that the Spanish-American War has had on the global distribution of power, consequences that to this day reverberate through politics, history, culture and economics. During the final week, participants will have ample time to develop their teaching modules and/or research projects while engaging in a series of workshops and discussion panels designed to weave these stories together into an integrated and multidisciplinary portrait. en_US
