FMU geographer to lead trip to Cuba

FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University assistant professor of geography Scott S. Brown will lead FMU students on a geography field course in Cuba next year.

 This exciting travel course will include a survey of Cuba’s geography, culture, politics and history.

  The trip is slated for the last two weeks of May and is open to all FMU undergraduates, as well as faculty and staff. Students will participate in classroom activities (readings and lectures) prior to departure and will keep a field journal while in Cuba. Students who take the course will earn three credit hours in geography.

 The tentative itinerary includes visits to the Museum of the Revolution, Partagas Cigar Factory, Ernest Hemingway’s farm, and Julio Diaz National Rehabilitation Center, all in Havana; the Bay of Pigs, site of the failed U.S. attempt to invade Cuba; the old Spanish colonial city of Trinidad; the Spanish American War site of San Juan Hill and the tomb of Jose Marti in Santiago de Cuba; Guantanamo Bay, site of a U.S. naval base; and the tobacco farms, karst geological formations and ecological reserve of the Pinar del Rio Province.

 The current estimate for trip expenses is between $1,800 and $2,200 per person. The first interest meeting for the trip will be held sometime in January and a non-refundable deposit of approximately $200 will be due by February.

 For more information, contact Brown at 843-661-1611 or ssbrown@fmarion.edu.
