The students had already been participating in an online distance-learning phase for several weeks that included substantial reading and discussion, and they now begin a two-week intensive phase at the Perry Center that will include plenary lectures, small group discussions, two exams, and a group exercise. Professor Manuel Lora is the course director, supported by facilitators Professors Michael Gold-Biss, Carlos Ospina, Pat Paterson, Guillermo Pacheco, and Patricia Escamilla-Hamm.
