MIAMI AS TEXT
Miami as Text is the world as seen by the students of John William Bailly of the FIU Honors College at Florida International University. The project provides authentic reflections through a juxtaposition of image and text. Neighborhood by neighborhood, place by place, object by object, young people respond with praise and criticism to The Magic City. In addition, Miami as Text projects see young Miamians journey across España, France, and Italia and reflect upon Western Europe with a unique Miami perspective.
These are not diaries or summaries of experiences. Miami as Texts projects are academic reflections that see students utilize a place as a starting point to reflect on a broader social, cultural, or historical issue. Andrea Sofia R. Matos’s Miami as Text reflections are the embodiment of this engagement and every student should read her blog prior to creating their own.
