About our program

We are a band of journalists who traveled abroad as an international press corps to cover, for a month, what was happening on the island of Cuba. The project is part of Northeastern University’s Dialogue of Civilizations study abroad program. For four weeks in May and June 2018, 16 undergraduate and two graduate students lived and worked in Havana, capturing the culture of the people on this small but lively, dynamic and fascinating Caribbean island. While we were embedded, we covered numerous topics including the U.S.-imposed embargo, dance, music, arts, sports, business and religion. On these pages, you’ll find articles, video reports, photos, podcasts and more – all the result of what Northeastern University School of Journalism students are capable of here and around the world. Have a comment or question? Please send it to program leader, Professor Carlene Hempel (c.hempel@northeastern.edu). We’d love to hear what you think of our work and our site.
