  • Nota del editor
    • Abstract: Vuelvo a escribir esta nota introductoria en castellano, para facilitar el acceso a los lectores de la isla. Comienzo por compartir una grata sorpresa: el número de trabajos enviados desde Cuba—desde varios rincones de Cuba—se multiplica rápidamente, dando fe de que numerosos intelectuales y académicos residentes en la isla ven a Cuban Studies como una plataforma importante para diseminar sus resultados de investigación. A nombre de nuestro equipo editorial, agradezco a nuestros colegas en Cuba por darnos la oportunidad de leer y de evaluar sus trabajos. Una mención especial a los miembros de nuestro consejo editorial, algunos de los cuales han animado a varios autores jóvenes a publicar con nosotros.Concluimos el ... Read More

  • Introduction: Looking Back and Forward
    • Abstract: Lourdes Casal is one of the most important figures in contemporary Cuban history and one of the most difficult to categorize. It is impossible to discuss the relationship between Cubans and Cuban Americans, and between Cuba and the United States, without being aware of her contributions. And yet because she was a woman, and moreover a black woman with Chinese heritage, and not just that, but a radical queer woman, and because she wrote both prose and poetry, devoting herself equally to scholarly work and creative work, she hasn't received the level of appreciation that she deserves. Especially in this moment of renewed relations between the United States and Cuba, it is imperative that Lourdes Casal be part of the ... Read More

  • On the "Shock" of Diaspora: Lourdes Casal's Critical Interdisciplinarity
           and Intersectional Feminism
    • Abstract: Cuban diaspora intellectual Lourdes Casal's writing imbricates theory and practice, aesthetics and politics, perspectives on the island and the diaspora, in a body of work that straddles divergent political affiliations and articulates a pioneering form of interdisciplinary Cuban, diaspora, and Afro-Latin@ studies. Casal herself transforms from exiled college student sharing the Catholic Church's critique of the 1959 revolution, to a radicalized "new left" intellectual committed to the Cuban revolution and to the struggle for "una nueva cultura."3 An advocate of the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States who contributed to a shift in policy whereby exiled Cubans and their ...

  • Race and Reconciliation in the Work of Lourdes Casal
    • Abstract: In the thick of the media storm that followed the December 17, 2014, announcements of intentions to normalize US-Cuban diplomatic relations, The Root published a piece that circulated widely titled "Black Cubans: Restoring US Ties Is Cool, but America, Keep Your Hang-Ups About Race at Bay." Aside from relying on some problematic generalizations, the article communicated two familiar arguments: first, Cuba's racial "hangups" aren't as dangerous as the racism that plagues the United States, and second, it highlights the historically assumed primacy of nationalism over race as constitutive of Cuban identity. Moreover, the article's interviews of black Cubans (almost exclusively of folks who were not living in Cuba) ... Read More

  • Lourdes Casal and Black Cubans in the United States: The 1970s and Beyond
    • Abstract: Lourdes Casal is known mostly as a creative writer and a public intellectual, but another important aspect of this multifaceted woman was a social scientist. Casal graduated with a degree in chemical engineering from the Catholic University of Villanueva in Havana, Cuba. But her interest in the social sciences was evident since she was very young. She took psychology courses at the University of Havana. After leaving Cuba for exile in 1962, she enrolled at the New School for Social Research in New York City (now known as New School), where she completed a doctorate in social psychology. She taught psychology at the City University of New York and later at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey.Lourdes Casal's ... Read More

  • Entre el ideal de la nación mestiza y la discordia racial: "Memories of a
           Black Cuban Childhood" y otros textos de Lourdes Casal
    • Abstract: Quisiera empezar por esbozar dos escenarios paradigmáticos extraídos de sendos textos autobiográficos escritos por autores afrodescendientes del exilio. En el primer texto, una mulata cubana proveniente de la clase media, tras experimentar la diferencia racial tanto en los Estados Unidos como en el África Occidental, llega a la conclusión de que Cuba provee el espacio idóneo para asumir a plenitud su identidad racial, la cual es producto tanto de la sangre africana, china y europea que corre por sus venas como de su peripecia vital. Ella es un exponente de lo que algunos llaman, siguiendo a Nicolás Guillén, "el color cubano" como resultado del mestizaje, esta vez en una triple dimensión. El texto al que aludo es un ... Read More

  • Identidad, modernidad, ocio: Jardines urbanos de La Habana en el siglo XIX
    • Abstract: Los jardines urbanos de La Habana constituyeron uno de los escenarios simbólicamente más densos a la hora de analizar la negociación de una identidad moderna en Cuba. En mi opinión, incluso aquéllos que fueron establecidos por las autoridades y se integraron, por tanto, dentro del proyecto colonial, fueron capaces de cuestionar a varios niveles tanto las limitaciones impuestas por las autoridades, como aquéllas desarrolladas por la propia élite urbana para preservar sus privilegios de clase. En este sentido, los jardines urbanos se convirtieron en un espacio neutralizador, no de la contaminación ni de la enajenación industrial, sino de los profundos conflictos identitarios que atravesó la población habanera durante ...

  • Los esclavos embargados: Movilidad, espacios y trabajo en la Guerra de los
           Diez Años
    • Abstract: Si un elemento caracteriza la producción historiográfica sobre Cuba en los últimos decenios, es el sostenido y creciente interés por el estudio de las problemáticas asociadas a la esclavitud de hombres y mujeres de origen africano. En un país de inmigración y, aún más, de esclavitud—como lo define el historiador Oscar Zanetti Lecuona—, las preocupaciones en modo alguno no son fortuitas ni de reciente data. Desde diversos campos disciplinares—etnología, antropología, demografía histórica y economía—un conjunto de investigadores plantearon problemas esenciales del fenómeno esclavista a lo largo de la vigésima centuria.No obstante los avances, con respecto a la evolución del régimen de servidumbre en el contexto de la ...

  • Sara Gómez: Afrocubana (Afro-Cuban Women's) Activism after 1961
    • Abstract: In the 1964 documentary Iré a Santiago (I'm Going to Santiago), Afro-Cuban director Sara Gómez celebrated Santiago de Cuba's black history. She employed wide shots of the eastern city's colonial streets, cathedral, and university while explaining to her audience that "the first blacks [in Cuba] were brought to Santiago and General Antonio Maceo was born here." In doing so, she emphasized the city's rich past and Afro-Cuban contributions to the nation. But in 1964, Gómez was not only aware of Santiago's past; she also had a stake in its future—a future marked by the dynamic social changes of the 1959 revolution, including both an antidiscrimination campaign and a movement to integrate women into the workforce. In ... Read More

    • Abstract: In April 1939, Santa Clara poet and teacher María Dámasa Jova gave a speech entitled "La situación de la mujer negra en Cuba" at the Third National Women's Congress. The forty-three-year-old woman of African descent argued that "the black mother suffered most because she was the mother of the marginal black child, the prostitute, the little newspaper vendor, the gang of robbers, the great number of unemployed and illiterate, and the ill-mannered black child." She went on to assert that discrimination within schools undermined social equality, as they trained black girls to become ironers rather than professionals. "When the black woman is conceded her rights and when there is a [sizable] percentage of black women ... Read More

  • The Racial Other's Dancing Body in El milagro de anaquillé (1927):
           Avant-Garde Ballet and Ethnography of Afro-Cuban Performance
    • Abstract: In the gruesome closing scene of Alejo Carpentier's 1927 ballet libretto El milagro de anaquillé, two Afro-Cuban deities strangle a North American movie director who in the process of filming an Abakuá ritual has desecrated the altar. Directions for the miseen-scène insist that the characters should look monstrous and move like robots. Carpentier imagines the divinities as gigantic puppets shaped like cylinders. The filmmaker is no less fantastic—wearing a mask that doubles the size of his head.1 These physiognomies, typical of futurist theater, make the avant-garde affiliation of the text apparent. In fact, the ballet was one of the earliest outcomes of the adoption of avant-garde vocabularies by Cuban artists in ... Read More

El cine ha sido un elemento clave para retomar un proyecto de evangelización malogrado desde los primeros años de la revolución. Este ensayo analiza cómo durante el período revolucionario la Iglesia católica cubana se acerca a la sociedad a través del audiovisual y cómo la década de los noventa, debido a las circunstancias económicas y políticas del país, se convierte en una etapa clave para que la Iglesia vuelva a proyectarse públicamente en la cultura nacional.En 1936 la encíclica Vigilanti Cura de Pío XI apunta al cine como uno de los medios de comunicación ...

We explain the composition of the NSS and identify four of their key groups: self-employed; usufruct farmers; members of the new nonagricultural and production cooperatives; and home buyers, sellers, and real estate agents. In each of the four groups we provide antecedents based on all the available information: size and trends, progress, obstacles, and impacts. The most ... Read More

Por primera vez se hacia el estudio de una empresa transnacional estadounidense, establecida en la mayor de Las Antillas. Otro hecho que marcaba aquel acontecimiento era que la obra fue el resultado de un trabajo en equipo de varios investigadores, asunto no muy frecuente en la historiografía cubana en aquellos momentos.

El tópico fundamental del autor, como bien señala María del Carmen Barcia en el prólogo, resulta cuanto menos expectante, considerando que establece un diálogo con las opiniones y reflexiones emitidas en la prensa cubana durante las primeras tres décadas del siglo XX.La obra rescata las voces de actores sociales representativos y polémicos, quienes desafiaron las leyes gravitacionales que había impuesto la "raza" como eje de distinción social y cultural.

  • Cuba, the United States, and Cultures of the Transnational Left,
           1930–1975 by John A. Gronbeck-Tedesco (review)
    • Abstract: The past few years seem to have inaugurated a transnational turn in the growing scholarship on Cuba's 1959 revolution.1 John Gronbeck-Tedesco's Cuba, the United States, and Cultures of the Transnational Left is a welcome addition to this trend. In this sweeping exploration of US-Cuban cultural and political relations, Gronbeck-Tedesco describes a shared long-term dialogue, "a larger transnational space of Left culture," constructed between Cuban and US activists (45). Yet this is not necessarily a story of unity. Gronbeck-Tedesco is sensitive to aspects of disagreement or mutual incomprehension—what he calls "gaps in the transnation" (68)—that make this a story of conflict as well as solidarity. Eschewing a ... Read More

Morrison's ambitious project tackles a long chronological scope, starting in the eighteenth century, moving through the illegal slave trade, the Wars of Independence, and emancipation in the nineteenth century, and concluding with the twentieth century and the Cuban Revolution. Morrison argues against an explanation of interracial family formation in Cuba, as being a simple matter of blanqueamiento, or a shared and straightforward project of whitening. Instead, she argues that "this study highlights the inextricable links between 'family,' ... Read More

The monograph is divided into six chapters that analyze the diplomatic relationship between Havana and Madrid from 1936 to 1942, Spanish pro-right-wing organizations in Cuba, and economic factors that motivated Cuba's responses. Figueredo's work underscores the Cuban state's contradictory reactions to Francisco Franco's rebellion: initially, state diplomacy and rhetoric externally supported the Republic while remaining internally tolerant of right-wing ...

Los científicos sociales que se dedican al estudio de dicho periodo, han acometido una ardua tarea de replanteos. Al respecto, los estudios de género y dentro de ellos la masculinidades, pudieran ubicarse como parte de las nuevas miradas historiográficas a partir del tratamiento a la (de)construcción de la masculinidad hegemónica y sus relaciones con otras identidades.La investigación de Dayron Oliva Hernández se enmarca en tales propósitos con su ensayo ¿La nación secuestrada' Machismo y racismo en la política inmigratoria cubana (1902–1933) ...

Expresiones como esta podían indicar los complejos procesos materiales y psicológicos a los que se enfrentaba la sociedad habanera del momento. Esta realidad es analizada a profundidad en La danza de los millones: Modernización y cambio cultural en La Habana (1915–1920), de Jorge Núñez Vega.

           Ritter and Ted A. Henken (review)
    • Abstract: The small business sector, under many different guises, often has been, since the 1960s, at the center of Cuban economic policy. In some ways it has been the canary in the mine. As ideological winds have shifted and economic conditions changed, it has been repressed or encouraged, morphed and gone underground, surviving, if not thriving, as part of the second or underground economy. Along the way, it has helped satisfy consumer needs not fulfilled by the inefficient state economy. This intricate, at times even colorful, trajectory has seen the 1968 Revolutionary Offensive that did away with even the smallest private businesses, modest efforts to legalize self-employment in the 1979s, the Mercados Libres Campesinos ...

La apertura y renovación historiográfica que existió durante los noventa condujo a replantear los referentes teóricos y metodológicos empleados en nuestras investigaciones, mucho de los cuales se convirtieron en "obsoletos," tras la crisis de los paradigmas y la "moda" de otras formas de hacer historia.Veinte años después, los que escriben la ...

El chiste formula la pregunta: "¿qué es un pinareño'"—es decir, un habitante de Pinar del Río—. La respuesta: "un palestino [oriental] al que se le pasó la parada de guaguas [autobuses] en La Habana." En Cuba, la percepción prevaleciente es que las regiones de Pinar del Río y Oriente son mucho más "atrasadas," rurales y pobres que la ciudad capital. La creciente migración de personas del extremo oriental de la isla—de donde provienen los "palestinos"—hacia La Habana ha sido objeto de rechazo y burla, según evidencia el humor popular.La obra provocadora, incisiva y bien fundamentada de ...

Nadie podría atraparlas. Sin embargo, para dejar a un lado el esquematismo, las descripciones rígidas, el voluntarismo, el teleologismo y dogmatismo que ha padecido la disciplina histórica a nivel mundial y nacional, pese a los ejemplos de consagración científica, resulta determinante una mirada múltiple en la que intervengan el mayor número de ciencias posibles relacionadas con el estudio del hombre y la sociedad. Sería lo que ya en nuestro siglo XIX se nombrara, como gesto fundador, una antropología filosófica. Esta concepción surgía ... Read More

Digital print, wax pencil and dry pastel on canvas, 39" × 78".Born in Havana in 1965, Ángel Delgado is a multifaceted and multidisciplinary artist who, since the early 1990s, has created a vast body of work around one central theme: freedom. Angelito, as he is familiarly known among colleagues and friends, will be forever remembered in the history of Cuban art for his imprisonment in the infamous Combinado del Este prison in 1990, an action that showcased the hopelessly repressive nature of the Cuban regime. In Hope Is the Last Thing That We Are Losing, Angelito staged a performance in which he defecated on a copy of Granma, the official daily of the Cuban Communist Party ... Read More
