CURSO: 

CULTURA CUBANA Y SUS RAICES AFRICANAS

PANORAMA ETNO-SOCIO-CULTURAL Y LINGUISTICO.

TIPO DE CURSO: POST-GRADO
TOTAL DE HORAS: 32-64

PROFESORES: Dra. Marta E. Cordiés Jackson.

FUNDAMENTACION:

El programa propone a través de cuatro módulos un acercamiento a cuestiones medulares de Cuba, el Caribe y la influencia africana a partir del estudio de los elementos que constituyen la identidad, las similitudes y diferencias en los procesos culturales y en la formación de las nacionalidades que lo integran.

 Cada módulo propone lograr una conceptualización y suministrar datos a los cursistas además de proveerle de un instrumental Teórico que los permita seguir profundizando en estos estudios.

 OBJETIVOS:

Desarrollar en los cursistas la capacidad de razonamiento abstracto mediante el establecimiento de relaciones conceptuales en los fenómenos interculturales a partir de establecer las relaciones pertinentes entre arte-literatura y contexto histórico, para que adquieran una visión general introductoria de las principales manifestaciones artístico-literaria de la región, comparando similitudes y diferencias en los procesos formativos de sus nacionalidades de forma tal que les permita desarrollar un enfoque y juicio crítico adecuado sobre las mismas. Siendo una vía para desarrollar y perfeccionar el idioma español a través de la comunicación con estos aspectos culturales.

SISTEMA DE HABILIDADES:

Argumentar y valorar aspectos históricos, socio-culturales, económicos y tanto geográfico como del área del caribe a partir de la selección y estudio bibliografía lo cual les permitirá formarse un criterio sobre esos aspectos así como los nexos entre arte-literatura-contexto histórico social.

INDICACIONES METODOLOGICAS:

El programa propone un contenido necesario en la formación de los egresados en ciencias sociales y humanísticas a partir de que será una contribución decisiva al entendimiento de sus raíces culturales, por cuanto la conceptualización del caribe, más que como conjunto geográfico, como universo cultural debe contribuir a desarrollar en ellos habilidades necesarias para profundizar en el estudio de las culturas y valores comunes de nuestros pueblos. Para ello organizaremos el curso partiendo de la unidad introductoria en conferencias productivas, una teórico-práctica que permita a los estudiantes partiendo de las obras literarias en los mismos llegar a establecer conclusiones. Una tercera unidad investigativa a partir de los conceptos asimilados los estudiantes puedan realizar una comunicación fluida en español.top
