Towards an Anti-Nationalist Pedagogy; a Comparative Exploration of Cuban and U.S. Teacher’s Relation to the State

Emma’s project seeks to interrogate how national identities are constructed and contested in the classroom. Education was a cornerstone of the 1959 Cuban Revolution, but the role of schooling in an “eternal revolution” remains hotly contested. Through interviews with both lifelong educators who lived through the revolution and young teachers who are now considering entering the field, this project will explore how perceptions of state mandated narratives are changing.
