  • Nota del editor
    • Abstract: Creo que lo más importante a destacar en nuestro trabajo editorial durante el último año es que hemos logrado estabilizar el cronograma de producción de Cuban Studies, que vuelve a ser lo que siempre fue en sus mejores tiempos: un anuario con fechas predecibles y confiables de publicación. El número de trabajos remitidos a la revista se ha incrementado considerablemente. Junto a ello, inevitablemente, ha decrecido la tasa de aceptación de trabajos para su publicación. El ser más selectivos nos permite trabajar de manera cuidadosa con nuestros autores para revisar sus textos y ofrecer artículos de la mayor calidad posible.Cuba ha estado en las noticias con frecuencia, entre otras cosas porque se ha cumplido un año ...

  • Constitución y constitucionalismo en Cuba: Introducción al
           dossier y reflexiones
    • Abstract: Los artículos en este dossier, organizado por iniciativa de Julio César Guanche, representan un loable intento de ponderar diversos aspectos de la Constitución vigente en Cuba. Este equipo académico ha laborado sobre cuatro temas. Uno es la ubicación de cualquier constitución en la conversación implícita entre el presente y el futuro, lo cual requiere meditar sobre el mecanismo formal de enmienda constitucional. Otro es el propio texto constitucional. ¿Cuál es la relación entre las partes fundamentales de cualquier constitución, y en particular de la cubana, para comprender su funcionamiento apropiado' Y, ¿cuál es la relación entre ese texto constitucional y el país que gobierna' El tercer tema examina la ...

  • The "Engine Room" of the Constitution (with Some Particular Attention to
           the Cuban Case)
    • Abstract: In the past century, most constitutions experienced an explosive expansion in their declarations of rights. The rights section of our constitutions has changed and grown dramatically, but this fundamental innovation has not been accompanied by equivalent, consequent changes in constitutions' organization of powers. The intuition that guides my argument is based on the assumption that the different parts, articles, and/or sections of a constitution are interrelated and that, consequently, what one does or not concerning one portion of the constitution has an impact on the rest of it—that is, changes introduced in the rights section of a constitution have an impact on the organization of powers, and vice versa. The ... Read More

  • ¿Es posible ampliar los derechos civiles y políticos en Cuba sin revocar
           el socialismo'
    • Abstract: En los últimos años la teoría constitucional latinoamericana ha renovado su interés por los procesos constituyentes y de reformas parciales o totales de las cartas magnas de la región. Estudios como los de Roberto Gargarella, profesor de la Universidad Torcuato di Tella, en Buenos Aires, o Gabriel Negretto, investigador del Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE), en la ciudad de México, son reveladores de la interlocución que la historia y la teoría políticas establecen con el nuevo ciclo de reformismo constitucional que se vive en América Latina desde mediados de la década pasada y, en algunos casos, desde los años 90.1Cuba ha permanecido al margen de ese ciclo de reformismo constitucional.2 Si la ...

  • Una Constitución para Cuba: La necesidad de una nueva constitución: El
           enfoque técnico y el enfoque político
    • Abstract: La Constitución cubana está vigente desde febrero de 1976, con ella nació institucionalmente el Poder Popular y la proclamación de que vivíamos jurídicamente en un Estado socialista.En el 2015 muchos nos preguntamos cómo rescatar la mística socialista que permita la resistencia de un núcleo no capitalista en la política y la economía cubanas, para aspirar desde ese centro a plantear un modelo de socialismo democrático, participativo, de soberanía popular, de resignificación de los valores de la República, con el Estado y más allá de él, desde la sociedad civil, para que se pueda superar el trauma de tantos años de excesivo centralismo, esquematismo político, dogmatismo ideológico, ninguno de ellos valores del ...

  • El lugar del derecho en el orden político de la reforma económica en
           Cuba: Entre la república y el reino
    • Abstract: Afirmar que el actual proceso de cambios en Cuba evidencia una comprensión del derecho que lo reduce a justificación de la política supone asumir una crítica frente a las posturas que valoran positivamente la reforma argumentando la existencia de una mayor utilización y presencia del derecho. Aun cuando este mayor uso pueda resultar cierto, señalamos problemas de fondo que afectan la legitimidad de este proceso. Problemas heredados del pasado y nunca solucionados, asociados a la construcción de un sistema jurídico socialista y a las limitaciones de la institucionalidad estatal, que conducen a reflexionar sobre las posibilidades de nuestra República, más allá de la forma de gobierno que esta implica.La estructura ...

  • La Constitución de 1940: Una reinterpretación
    • Abstract: La interpretación de la Constitución cubana de 1940 ha estado dominada por dos claves estándar de lectura: representó el mayor proceso de consenso en Cuba republicana y resultó "burlada" por la carencia de legislación accesoria, que le otorgó escaso alcance normativo. En el presente texto, releo la segunda de estas claves. Para ello, repaso los debates sobre la liquidación de la moratoria hipotecaria y la discriminación racial. Mi hipótesis es que la forma en que quedaron solucionados ambos problemas en 1940—en el primer caso, la moratoria fue diferida a favor de los deudores en más de 20 años y, en el segundo, la Constitución creó el delito de discriminación racial—resolvían asuntos de importancia crucial para el ...

    • Abstract: Para Ana Lourdes Hart, la otra "Ana cubana" con quien reencontré a Lourdes Casal en un café de New Jersey.I still remembered how I listened, wide-eyed and nauseated, to the stories—always whispered, always told as when one is revealing unspeakable secrets—about the horrors committed against my family and other blacks during the racial war of 1912. … The stories terrified me, not only because of their violence, but because my history books said nothing about these incidents.Lourdes Casal, "Race Relations in Contemporary Cuba"Comenzabas muchas conversaciones diciendo, "tengo una fantasía." Y nos contabas desde la ilusa librería que ibas a poner en Broadway y que tendría una imprenta y después una editorial y hasta un ... Read More

  • Jesús Díaz, 1941–2002: The Unintentional Deviationist
    • Abstract: La historia de la cultura cubana en la Revolución no puede escribirse sin el compromiso y la obra múltiple y abarcadora de Jesús Díaz. Lo curioso es que sin ella tampoco es posible escribir la historia del exilio cubano.The Cuban writer and filmmaker Jesús Díaz was a major player on the politico-cultural scene in Havana and Madrid. He was a pure product of the Cuban Revolution: he benefited from it, but he was also victimized by the regime he wanted to serve. He left the island in 1992 and became a prominent dissident, first in Berlin and then in Madrid, at a time when scarcity and despair led many artists and (to a lesser extent) writers to leave the country en masse (Alberto 1997; Pedraza 2007). His work and ... Read More

  • La política de educación superior en el mapa de las reformas actuales:
           Cambios de política y la Política sin cambios
    • Abstract: Uno de los capítulos del paquete de reformas que impulsa actualmente el gobierno de Cuba corresponde a cambios en su política educativa, específicamente en el ámbito universitario. En su conjunto, las reformas se diseñan en los Lineamientos de la Política Económica y Social del Partido y la Revolución aprobados en 2011, con el objetivo de hacer más eficiente la economía nacional en aras del "perfeccionamiento" del sistema socialista cubano, próspero y sostenible. Se aclara desde el gobierno que estamos frente a una actualización del modelo económico pero sin cambios políticos, restricción que ha generado cuestionamientos desde la investigación y otros sectores. Como consecuencia de la postura estatal ante el cambio ... Read More

  • Writing the Music of the City in the Early 1930s: Two Poems by
           Nicolás Guillén
    • Abstract: In his analysis of the revised edition (1963) of C. L. R. James's classic study of the Haitian Revolution (1791–1803), The Black Jacobins (1938), David Scott argues that James's portrayal of the Haitian slaves' defiant assertion of their quest for autonomy as a modernizing gesture rests on a Hegelian concept of tragedy. In Scott's view, by casting the insurgent slaves as the embodiment of the idea of political modernity, James's reading of historical events illustrates the irreconcilability of a conflict between two intransigent modes of behavior. Because European enslavers had forcibly installed people of African descent into a modern regime of power that reshaped the existential choices available to them, the ... Read More

  • Haunting Pasts: Ghosts of Exile in the Poetry of Nancy Morejón, Nilda
           Cepero, and Andrea O'Reilly Herrera
    • Abstract: Behind every woman writer flutters the ghost of her mother.A phantomlike city stalking you wherever you go, a stranger whose face resembles your own staring from a photograph, spirits of the past pushing and pressing from within your body—ghostly elements and reappearing specters haunt Nancy Morejón's "Ante un espejo," Nilda Cepero's "Burialground" and "Tropical Flavor," and Andrea O'Reilly Herrera's "Inhabited Woman." These poems speak to the Cuban exile experience; although separated from her home, the exile's past is not erased but is conserved and present in memories. Through traces and resonances of the past, Cuban culture stays with her. In their poems, Morejón, Cepero, and O'Reilly Herrera write of women who ... Read More

  • Sabor colonial: Crafting Savory Bodies through Cuban Music and Dance
    • Abstract: Fernando Ortiz's analogy of Cuban identity as ajiaco (stew) resonates with the cultural historian Pablo Riaño San Marful's description of the nineteenth century in Cuba as "somewhat of a stock or medium of cultivation of what later, and always forever will be Cuba."1 After nearly four centuries of Spanish colonialism, wars of independence were fought in Cuba starting in 1868, which led to a period of neocolonial republicanism under US intervention in 1898. During this century of cultivation, distinctively Cuban music and dance genres emerged with roots in European and African traditions. The introduction of the printing press early in the century made available detailed historical records that offer a window into ... Read More

  • Old and New Politics in Cuba: Revisiting Young Eddy Chibás,
           1927–1940
    • Abstract: When seventeen-year-old Eduardo Chibás set off on a European tour with his family, he was determined to enjoy himself but he also guarded a secret. During that summer of 1925, he took dancing lessons, ogled the Swiss Alps, beheld Florentine masterpieces, and wooed Parisian beauties. His most gratifying moments occurred before reaching the Old World, however. As a passenger on the steamship Lafayette, Eddy, as he was commonly known, mingled with several of Cuba's political luminaries. These included Miguel Arango y Mantilla, an erstwhile vice presidential candidate, and Miguel Mariano Gómez, the son of Cuba's second president. An ambitious and politically minded physiologist named Ramón Grau San Martín was also on ... Read More

  • En los límites del discurso esclavista: Retórica abolicionista, afectos
           y sensibilidad en Los esclavos en las colonias españolas de la condesa de
           Merlin
    • Abstract: Con Los esclavos en las colonias españolas (1841), María de las Mercedes de Santa Cruz y Montalvo (1789–1852), condesa de Merlin, interviene en un largo debate sobre la esclavitud en el mundo atlántico y caribeño.1 El folleto es probablemente la única defensa proesclavista escrita por una mujer dentro de la tradición cubana y caribeña en un período en el cual el abolicionismo figuraba como el discurso y la ideología dominante en gran parte del mundo atlántico. Su lectura es fundamental para entender cómo, a pesar de los diferentes fines que alentaron las corrientes antiesclavistas y proesclavistas, las fronteras entre ambas tradiciones fueron más permeables y porosas de lo que en un principio pudieran parecer. Las ... Read More

           Introduction to the Dossier
    • Abstract: When John Gutiérrez approached me to be the discussant for the panel "Race, Health, and Disease in Republican Cuba" at the Cuban Research Institute's Tenth Conference on Cuban and Cuban-American Studies, I was thrilled. We had met and talked early on in our academic careers as we were both venturing into what seemed unchartered territories of Cuban history: a new history of yellow fever on the island in my case, and a history of tuberculosis during the early republic in his. Almost a decade later, the conversation about the history of early twentieth-century Cuban health care has gained more members: Jennifer Lambe, whose work on the history of mental illness and mental health care appeared in the previous issue of ...

    • Abstract: In September 1908, Dr. Joaquín Jacobsen, a Cuban physician and the president of La Liga contra la Tuberculosis en Cuba, addressed the Sixth International Congress on Tuberculosis in Washington, DC.1 Jacobsen was one of Cuba's recognized experts on tuberculosis and, as president of La Liga, among the most prominent leaders of the island's incipient antituberculosis movement. Beyond Cuba's borders, Jacobsen was well respected by colleagues in Latin America, the United States, and Europe, conferring with and visiting them to learn about advances in the long, frustrating battle against "consumption." Thus, when Jacobsen was named one of the congress's nine honorary presidents, joining a list that included some of the ... Read More

As they made their way through a dense crowd of children and parents, photographers and reporters, the president and his wife inspected the dining rooms, grounds, and dormitories where almost four hundred poor children would spend their summer months away from the insalubrious environment of the Cuban capital. Later that day, the president and his wife handed out toys and watched as children performed calisthenic exercises and participated in road races.1 Envisioned as a temporary summer health resort during the scorching summer months of ...

    • Abstract: Throughout the first half of the twentieth century, from the mines of South Africa to the slums of San Juan, the reservations of Native Americans, and the agricultural fields of Southern California, health practitioners detected a striking trend: tuberculosis attacked nonwhite populations with an intensity and scope unparalleled in white populations in the same locales.1 Cuban physicians reported similar observations. In the early 1930s, nonwhites represented only 27.2 percent of the population, but they accounted for 38.9 percent of all tuberculosis deaths.2 By the mid-1940s, nonwhites constituted 25.6 percent of the population and 34.5 percent of total tuberculosis deaths.3 The disease, one black politician ...

  • Autobiography of a Cuban Businessman in the 1940s and 1950s
    • Abstract: Jorge José Domínguez (1921–2012), hereafter JJD, served as executive vice president and de facto chief executive officer of a Cuban family's construction materials company. He began work at the family company in the early 1940s through July 10, 1960. In those years, the company was best known as Calera Santa Teresa, a lime factory. Its largest subsidiary would become Cemento Santa Teresa, the first wholly Cuban-owned cement company in Cuba and one of the country's three cement factories in the late 1950s, which upon expropriation in 1960 came to be known as Mártires de Artemisa. The company's founder was Manuel Domínguez Morejón, JJD's father, who served as board chairman until 1960. In time, JJD's brother-in-law ... Read More

    • Abstract: Por su larga militancia en el Partido Comunista de Cuba, conocido también en una época por Partido Socialista Popular (PSP) desde su legalización en 1938 hasta inicios de la Revolución Cubana de 1959, Edith García Buchaca fue una figura clave en el desarrollo de los sectores culturales. Además, tuvo un papel importante en la vinculación de los objetivos del Partido con perspectivas y actividades nacionalistas de intelectuales no comunistas cubanos durante el siglo XX. Casada con Carlos Rafael Rodríguez durante diez años,1 y luego con Joaquín Ordoqui por otra década más,2 García Buchaca borró fronteras entre labores personales y políticas. Tanto ella como sus esposos, estuvieron comprometidos como ideólogos y ... Read More

  • Prostitution, Modernity, and the Making of the Cuban Republic
           (1840–1920) by Tiffany Sippial (review)
    • Abstract: Prostitution, Modernity, and the Making of the Cuban Republic is a cutting-edge account of a previously unstudied topic in Cuban history. Tiffany Sippial demonstrates that the state regulation of the lives of prostitutes was a negotiated process in which the women themselves exerted considerable agency. Much more than being the first in-depth study of prostitution in Cuba, the book explores the ways national debates over prostitution refracted prevailing anxieties about nationality, modernity, and citizenship in Cuba during a period of intense growth and transformation. This represents a welcome departure from the conventional studies on the topic that conflate a history of prostitution with an account of its state ... Read More

  • Freedom's Mirror: Cuba and Haiti in the Age of Revolution by Ada Ferrer
           (review)
    • Abstract: In this magisterial study two violent revolutions unfold as each other's mirror opposite, so that, by the second decade of the nineteenth century, Haiti became "the epicenter of Black Atlantic freedom" and "Cuba became its antithesis" (338). Freedom's Mirror traces Haiti's impact on Cuba's transformation into a sugar and slave colony, an anachronism just as slavery and imperial rule were collapsing across Spanish America. The fiery historical conjuncture of Cuba's sugar revolution and Saint-Domingue's antislavery and independence struggle made Haiti a near-possible world next door, a black "kingdom of this world" that threatened Cuba's socio-economic order. By the same token, "the progress of revolution and ... Read More

  • Rhythms of Race: Cuban Musicians and the Making of Latino New York City
           and Miami, 1940–1960 by Christina Abreu (review)
    • Abstract: Rhythms of Race provides a detailed historical analysis of Cuban musicians and their audiences in mid-twentieth-century New York City and Miami. This book joins a diverse literature by ethnomusicologists, cultural studies scholars, social scientists, and historians who have examined Cuban music and migrants in the United States, as well as issues of race, ethnicity, and nationality associated with cross-border movements. To offer a fresh look on well-known musicians, Christina Abreu utilizes new primary resources (e.g., recently available oral-history interviews at the Centro de Estudios Puertorriqueños and Bronx County Historical Society) and includes audiences in her analysis of performers. The work also sheds ... Read More

  • José Martí: A Revolutionary Life by Alfred J. López
           (review)
    • Abstract: Anyone who is aware of the old, tired, and often furious enmity between the two opposing political ideologies that have prevailed among Cubans, especially after the Castros came to power in January 1959, knows that it is rather unusual, and at times even risky, to take something resembling an objective position regarding José Martí (or regarding anything interpreted as political, for that matter). The reason this political fury concentrates on the figure of Martí is rather simple. For more than a century now, Martí has been the icon of embattled Cuban nationalism. Most Cubans want to own Martí, and they often claim that his ideas and life coincide exactly with their own political convictions, regardless of what the ... Read More

    • Abstract: Uno de los proyectos emblemáticos de la renovadora política social y cultural de la Revolución Cubana fue la campaña de alfabetización de 1960–1961. En pocos meses, una gigantesca movilización juvenil se dio a la tarea de enseñar las primeras letras a más de un millón de analfabetos cubanos, ubicados, sobre todo, en las zonas rurales serranas del centro y el oriente de la isla. En una población de casi siete millones de habitantes, el índice de analfabetismo de Cuba no era de los más altos de América Latina, pero el gobierno revolucionario decidió hacer de alfabetización una prioridad del nuevo Estado, con el fin de aumentar el nivel de instrucción de la población y de involucrar a la juventud en una tarea de alto ...

De los 250.000 voluntarios que se inscribieron, más de la mitad fueron mujeres y la cineasta escogió los testimonios de nueve de ellas entonces adolescentes, Daysi Veitía, Norma Guillard, Adria Santana, Ivonne Santana, Diana Balboa, Blanca Monett, Eloísa Hernández y Gina Rey, aunque una, Griselda Aguilera, apenas contaba con siete años cuando se aprestó a alfabetizar a un hombre con más de cinco décadas.Los testimonios de estas mujeres ...

Se impone por fuerza mayor de las circunstancias actuales la necesaria problematización de las líneas históricas comunes, y con ella la articulación de los orígenes y destinos de los estados de esta parte del planeta. A esto se añade la ineludible comparación con la porción norte y más desarrollada del continente americano, y cuyo papel en la evolución regional ha estado presente desde tiempos pretéritos, con pesares y glorias. En este ánimo de igualación y contraste de la historia continental se inserta el libro Visión integra de ... Read More

    • Abstract: Un pueblo disperso: Dimensiones sociales y culturales de la diáspora cubana, edited by Jorge Duany, contributes to the field of Cuban and Cuban American migration scholarship, by analyzing the evolution of Cuban migrants from exiles to members of a transnational diasporic community. The book forces the reader to look beyond traditional perceptions of Cuban migrations as affluent, hard-line, patriarchal, and socially conservative, in order to analyze the seismic shifts in attitudes and cultural production in the more recent Cuban migrations. Although this approach is not new to the field of Cuban migration studies, the monograph complies twenty-six chapters whose authors apply an array of theoretical approaches from ... Read More

Ahora aparece en libro impreso una antología que reúne estos mismos cuentos en su traducción al inglés. Cabe preguntarse el porqué de esta edición "física" de los textos; gesto que pudiera parecer redundante, dada su accesibilidad en el universo digital. Pudiera deberse a un deseo de hacer llegar estos cuentos a un sector del público lector que no ... Read More

Ante los resquicios analíticos dejados por prestigiosos especialistas, como Roberto González Echevarría desde los estudios literarios y Rafael Rojas desde la investigación histórica, el autor replantea la compleja convivencia entre la estética y la política en la Cuba revolucionaria. La politización del arte, asociada con los procesos sociales de izquierda tras la Revolución Rusa, relegó a un plano menos visible la estetización de la política, aparentemente exclusiva de las variantes totalitarias de ...

Su autor, Moshe Morad, la describe como una obra dedicada a entender los diferentes modos en que la música se constituye en agente aglutinador de la identidad gay, aunque también puede verse como un estudio de las maneras en que dicha identidad se construye y proyecta a través de la música, y una identificación de las principales variantes musicales que la enmarcan en una sociedad homofóbica.Se trata, según el autor, de un análisis no de la producción musical sino de su consumo, en el que se subraya la participación activa del consumo cultural en la producción y consolidación ...

  • Rebel Dance, Renegade Stance: Timba Music and Black Identity in Cuba by
           Umi Vaughan (review)
    • Abstract: The first North American scholar to produce a monograph on Cuban timba, Umi Vaughan conducted fieldwork during extended stays in Havana between 1999 and 2003. Arriving just after the heyday of timba and deeply involved in Afro-Cuban religion, he was uniquely positioned to write about the music and its surrounding culture. Rebel Dance explores how timba expresses black Cuban identity, and how black Cubans express their shared identity through timba. According to Vaughan, timba is a music and dance culture that exemplifies the Maroon spirit, exposing the marginality, creativity, and self-sufficiency of Afro-Cubans.1 The chapters thus deal consecutively with Maroon music, Afro-Cuba, the especulador, dance spaces in ...

  • The Semiotics of Che Guevara: Affective Gateways by Maria-Carolina Cambre
           (review)
    • Abstract: It is an unflaggingly omnipotent image, the inspiration for countless revolts, T-shirts, and, of course, academic treatments. In The Semiotics of Che Guevara, Maria-Carolina Cambre returns us once more to the iconic face of Ernesto "Che" Guevara as captured by Alberto Korda, the man who would become the favorite photographer of the Cuban Revolution. To say that she thereby joins a full company of scholars is something of an understatement; several book-length studies and articles predate her own. Nonetheless, Cambre enthusiastically steps up to the plate, positioning herself as another consumer, reinterpreter, and reproducer of this symbol, with an emphasis on the "semiotic" and "affective" dimensions of its ...

    • Abstract: Rafael López-Ramos, ¿Seremos como quién' (Shall we be like who'), 2006, diptych, acrylic and ink on unprimed canvas, 36 1/2″ × 37″.Born in Cabaiguán (1962), Rafael López Ramos came of age as an artist during the late 1980s, after graduating from the San Alejandro Fine Arts Academy in 1985. These were transitional years in Cuba, when a new generation of intellectuals and artists—the first generation born after the revolution of 1959—sought to democratize Cuban socialism from within, under the influence of the Soviet perestroika and the postmodern skepticism that was so prevalent at the time. "The generation of the 1980s, to which I belong, faced the Cuban government in rather strong terms. To me, it has been the ... Read More
