  • Editor’s Note/Nota del editor
    • Abstract: Con este volumen celebramos los primeros cinco años de esta nueva etapa editorial de Cuban Studies. Los trabajos publicados desde el 2014 reflejan la riqueza de los estudios cubanos y sugieren algunos de los temas que preocupan al campo y a la sociedad cubana en su conjunto. Esos temas, que han sido objeto de diversos dossiers durante los últimos años, incluyen estudios demográficos y de envejecimiento de la población; nuevas aproximaciones a la historia de la salud pública en Cuba, en especial durante el periodo republicano; las lentas, incompletas e insuficientes reformas económicas; y las demandas de igualdad e inclusión articuladas por el movimiento afrodescendiente cubano. Hemos publicado también trabajos ... Read More

  • Gender and Feminism: New Directions in Cuban Studies
    • Abstract: The four essays in this dossier examine complimentary aspects of women’s subordination in contemporary Cuba. Taken together, they allow readers to appreciate the broad landscape of women’s disadvantage as well as circumstances under which gender is constructed and reconstructed. The essays also contain strong common threads. All argue that the official ideology of equality veils growing gendered inequalities, and the Raulista economic transformation has further aggravated gendered inequalities. Taking into account gender and power and gendered power, the dossier offers new readings of post-Soviet Cuban history. The dossier lays the foundation for comparative studies of gendered power and Cuban women’s advantages ... Read More

  • Regímenes de bienestar en Cuba: Mujeres y desigualdades
    • Abstract: Desde 2006 y hasta la fecha, en Cuba se han producido importantes transformaciones estructurales y de dinámicas políticas. Los siguientes ejes de cambio son indicios de la magnitud del proceso.En el plano de la economía política:Modificación de la estructura productiva, especialmente, ampliación del sector no estatal de la economía, con la consecuente complejización de los mercados laboralesAbandono de la política de pleno empleo por parte del Estado, argumentada en la existencia de “sobre-empleo” en el sector estatalEstímulo a la inversión extranjera, la productividad y la disminución de erogaciones en divisas. En el plano de la política institucional y las políticas sociales:Sucesión del presidente Raúl Castro ... Read More

  • Feminismo y economía política marxista en la Revolución Cubana:
           ¿Debate ausente'
    • Abstract: El 17 de enero de 2014, la periodista rosarina Alicia Simeoni publica una entrevista a Mariela Castro en el periódico regional Página 12. Entre las preguntas se encuentra: ¿cómo definiría la relación entre feminismo y marxismo' En una apretada síntesis, Mariela responde:1 Hay una excelente relación entre feminismo y marxismo, con independencia de los ajustes que se haya tenido que hacer en el camino. . . . Las herramientas que nos brinda el marxismo deben ser utilizadas con el espíritu dialéctico e histórico, debe hacerse el análisis de la historia en sus situaciones concretas . . . El feminismo también aporta a la transformación social, y si lo hace desde una mirada marxista, creo que aporta aún más. . . . ... Read More

  • Cubanas en transición: Un acercamiento a la
           estabilización-desestabilización del género y la política desde sus
           relatos temporales
    • Abstract: La función de los relatos tiene un peso central en la construcción de la historia (no hegemónica) y la Historia (hegemónica). Ellos nos muestran las pugnas que constituyen la realidad de los sujetos envueltos en ella. Los relatos discursan a sus propios enunciantes y las temporalidades que los constituyen. Todo relato es temporal en tanto se produce en una temporalidad específica, un “aquí y ahora” pero también en la medida que se estructure sobre el abordaje de una temporalidad específica. Es esta segunda cualidad la que define en nuestro criterio lo que entendemos como relato temporal, aquel en el cual el objeto mismo de su organización es el pasado, el presente o el futuro (Tironi 2009). Los relatos temporales ... Read More

  • Acceso a la justicia familiar patrimonial cubana desde el género
    • Abstract: Este ensayo aborda aspectos de diferenciación y desigualdad social que emergen y se entrecruzan durante varios momentos: antes, durante y después de acudir a la jurisdicción familiar —específicamente procesos incidentales de liquidación de comunidad matrimonial de bienes—. Con ese objetivo, revela la interdependencia de fenómenos de desigualdad social a través de un análisis interdisciplinario que integra varias dimensiones del derecho. Con el uso de herramientas de la teoría jurídica, la sociología jurídica y la teoría de género del derecho, argumento un análisis que va más allá del formalismo legal, para ahondar en la dimensión social, política, axiológica y práctica del derecho (Fernández Bulté 2004).

  • Where the Cuban Economy Stands in Latin America: A New Measurement of
           Gross Domestic Product
    • Abstract: There is no adequate measurement of gross domestic product (GDP) in dollars to weigh the size of the Cuban economy and the income of its citizens compared to other countries in the region. The data offered by the Cuban government and those presented by international institutions are biased by problems of multiple exchange rates or failures to consider international relative prices.1 Available data regarding long-term economic growth trends offer a first clue that the Cuban economy has been losing relative weight against ten countries of similar size in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC-10: Bolivia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama, Paraguay, Dominican Republic, Uruguay). Cuban GDP grew ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Human Development Index (HDI), annually published since 1990 by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), is the most widely used tool in the world to rank about 188 countries in terms of socioeconomic development.1 The HDI is based on three indicators related to health, education, and economic standards: life expectancy at birth, a combination of expected and mean years of schooling, and gross domestic product (GDP) per capita adjusted to inflation and converted to US dollars based on the purchasing parity power exchange rate (GDP p/c PPP US$).2 An index is estimated for each of the three indicators, and the three indexes are merged into the HDI at equal weight. Cuba’s HDI ranking has been significantly ... Read More

  • The Behavior of Total Factor Productivity in Cuba: A Comment on Pavel
           Vidal’s Article
    • Abstract: The article by Pavel Vidal (2017) covers a great deal of territory, including the complicated task of converting Cuba’s gross domestic product (GDP) into US dollars and of comparing Cuba to a number of Latin American countries. All this he does superbly. In this article, I concentrate on another topic of analytical and policy relevance: the construction and interpretation of total factor productivity (TFP).Total factor productivity (sometimes called multifactor productivity) is usually defined as the set of factors that contribute jointly to the productivity of capital and labor. These factors include technological, policy-related, organizational, and demographic variables that improve or diminish the performance ... Read More

  • Reflections on Cuba’s National Income Statistics
    • Abstract: Pavel Vidal is to be commended for his very thorough study comparing Cuba’s economic performance with that of a set of ten Latin American and Caribbean countries over the period 1970–2014.1 Vidal did this by painstakingly calculating the value and growth rate of Cuba’s gross domestic product (GDP), converted to US dollars using purchasing power parity (PPP) exchange rates, to make regional comparisons and also calculates total factor productivity in Cuba and those countries. The severe difficulties that Vidal had to overcome to measure the size of the Cuban economy and its performance, and the numerous assumptions and adjustments that he had to make to official data in order to be able to compare Cuba with its ...

  • Foreword
    • Abstract: Few deficiencies of the colonial regime rankled creole sensibilities more than the deplorable state of education. Simply in terms of numbers—the number of teachers and number of schools for the number of students—the colonial education system was unable to meet even the minimum needs of the school-age population. Schools were poorly funded and ill equipped; teachers were often inadequately trained and always poorly paid. “We have been left without schools, without books, without teachers, and without students,” complained Manuel Valdés Rodríguez in 1891. Education was in wretched condition, suffering equally from neglect and negligence, from mismanagement and malfeasance, as well as inadequate instruction and ... Read More

    • Abstract: In early 1899, Martín Reinoso appeared before the Cienfuegos City Council, applying for the position of meat inspector. Reinoso’s experience and credentials should have amply qualified him for the job. Hailing from the city’s community of black professionals and tradesmen, he had served as the veterinarian for the Cuban Army’s Brigade of Cienfuegos during the War of Independence (1895–1898) and obtained recommendations from high-ranking local military officers. Nevertheless, councilmen preferred to leave the position vacant than allowing Reinoso to serve.1 No one mentioned his race as a reason for his disqualification from the relatively low-level government position, but the subtext was clear.The rejection of ...

           Education in Colonial Cuba
    • Abstract: In 1856, a black man named José Moreno applied for a teaching license from the Spanish colonial government in Havana, Cuba.1 Moreno was one of several former servicemen of color who, in the years after black and mulatto militias were disbanded, had decided to become teachers. They were joining many free blacks in the nineteenth century who were turning to the educational sphere to confront the hardening of racial boundaries in Cuba, just as whites had begun to regard education as an arena for the formulation and development of new national racial-segregation policies. When Moreno applied for his license, the colonial public education system had been in place less than fifteen years, having been created under the ... Read More

La propuesta consiste en explicar los métodos y estrategias implementadas por los protestantes para lograr establecerse en el panorama educacional cubano de la república. También se persigue analizar la manera en que estos discursos educativos calaron en sectores medios de la sociedad y en menor medida en aquellos menos adinerados. La historia de este andar demostró ser heterogénea en tanto no existía una estructura piramidal que controlara la política seguida por los directores de escuelas o por los mismos profesores.

  • The Liberal Moment of the Revolution: Cuba’s Early Educational

    • Abstract: On October 19, 1959, a “modest reception” was held at the private publisher Editorial Lex in Havana to celebrate the second edition of Antonio Núñez-Jiménez’s Geografía de Cuba, which had just come off the press.1 Minister of Education Armando Hart welcomed the publication as the first example of a new generation of textbooks. Probably no book had a greater impact on the revolutionary leadership and its understanding of Cuba’s socioeconomic environment than this one. Núñez Jiménez’s Geografía de Cuba was first published in August 1954. Written as a textbook for Cuba’s secondary schools, the first edition was soon prohibited by the Batista government. A textbook commission led by then Minister of Education López Isa ... Read More

Cruzes, a cargo de su tutela. Las pesquisas arrojaron que la causa de ese desenlace fueron los golpes físicos recibidos por su maestro Vicente González Valís. La investigación del caso estuvo a cargo del eminente bibliógrafo Antonio Bachiller y Morales por orientación del pedagogo José de la Luz y Caballero. No se trataba de un hecho aislado en la Cuba decimonónica. En cartas, informes, expedientes judiciales, entre otros documentos, se evidenciaban los conflictos de poder que venían suscitándose en la cotidianidad de las ... Read More

  • The Myth of Mafia Rule in 1950s Cuba: Origin, Relevance, and Legacies
    • Abstract: I think one of the paradoxes of writing fiction is when people enjoy it, they want it to be real.In a popular scene from the 1974 movie The Godfather, Part II, Cuba’s president Fulgencio Batista gathers an impressive array of North American businessmen at the Presidential Palace in Havana in December 1958 to reassure them that the advancing rebels will not succeed in toppling the government. Sitting close to the dictator are Michael Corleone—the “Godfather,” a leader of the American Mafia, whom Batista introduces as “representing our associates in tourism and leisure activities”—and Hyman Roth, a character modeled after the real-life mob financier Meyer Lansky. Batista refers to Roth as “my old friend and ... Read More

  • Cuba’s National Sexual Education Program: Origins and Evolution
    • Abstract: Sexual education in contemporary Cuba is considered by many to be extremely progressive. In 2017, for example, the national program officer of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Marisol Alonso de Armas, explained, “Cuba is one of the countries of Latin America that has progressed the most in implementing a comprehensive sexual education program” (Lotti 2017). Indeed, with a national program that includes themes of sexual diversity (LGBTQ) and sexual violence, and in addition challenges gender stereotypes and promotes equal sexual rights for men and women, sexual education in Cuba has certainly changed dramatically throughout the Revolution. Yet this topic is vastly understudied in scholarly work.Some ... Read More

La crítica de la sociedad, en consecuencia, comienza con la gramática y con el restablecimiento de los significados.The term revolution has a significant positive connotation in the Western political tradition, so it is not surprising that a regime born of such an epochal event would want to keep the enchantment alive.

This way, I became witness to and participant in one of the most influential social movements of recent American history. I remember the early years of the revolution that inspired the dream of tearing down the old socioeconomic system to build a more just and inclusive society. Unfortunately, the attempt to make the dream come true discouraged entrepreneurship and did away with many individual rights and responsibilities. As in the German saying, a baby was thrown out ...

Despite the obvious political irony of his paintings and drawings, or perhaps because of it, José Toirac was awarded last year’s National Prize of Fine Arts in Cuba while we were preparing his presentation at DRCLAS, a much-deserved acknowledgment of his independent career that is finally catching up with what we understand as his “political poiesis.” ...

    • Abstract: José Angel Toirac (b. 1966) is one of the leading artists of the generation of the 1990s, a group of artists who came to the Cuban public art scene precisely as the socialist system under which they had grown up was beginning to crumble. Toirac graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte in 1990, just as the so-called Special Period—the economic and social crisis experienced by the island after the fall of the Soviet Union—began to unfold. It was a tough decade for Cubans, young and old, a decade in which the very fabric of time unraveled, as the past appeared to be no longer. Social and economic ills that had been supposedly vanquished and that had supposedly vanished—racism, prostitution, foreign tourists and ... Read More

As the uncertainties (if not the difficulties) of Cuba’s “Special Period” fade into twilight, paranoia and utopia are central concerns of Butler’s Diaries and Julia Cooke’s The Other Side of Paradise (2014), books whose narrators wrestle with their own desires and fears as foreigners on a seemingly forbidden ...

Estos aspectos de las relaciones interpersonales son considerados desde un punto de vista amplio, de manera que se poetiza la atracción entre corporalidades o la vivencia del homoerotismo en relación con el espacio público y privado, la geografía, y aspectos simbólicos como el laberinto urbano o el espejo cotidiano.La mayoría de poemas fueron compuestos en español pero también se incluyen algunos en inglés con ...

  • Empire’s Guestworkers: Haitian Migrants in Cuba during the Age of US
           Occupation by Matthew Casey (review)
    • Abstract: Between 1913 and 1931, hundreds of thousands of Haitians, out of economic desperation or by active choice, traveled to Cuba as temporary workers under contract with mostly US-owned sugar companies. They were not the first Haitian migrants to travel to Cuba, but new Cuban legislation made them part of “the first global generation of guestworkers” (3). Cuba, like other modern states, sought to establish its sovereignty in part by claiming control over its borders.Matthew Casey places these migrants at the center of a history that emphasizes their agency while being attentive to the forces, local and global, economic and political, that structured their experiences. Not only did Haitian migrants pursue their own goals ... Read More

Su reinterpretación del arte de los años 80, a través del énfasis en el performance, desafía lugares comunes de los estudios culturales cubanos, al descentrar la plástica de la pintura y reintegrar lo político a lo estético.1Las investigaciones de Fusco advirtieron que en la narrativa hegemónica sobre el arte ...

  • Cuban Émigrés and Independence in the Nineteenth-Century Gulf World by

    • Abstract: Narratives of Latin American struggles against Iberian colonialism have too often cast Cuba as a case apart. Histories of the birth of the Cuban nation, for their turn, have overlooked Latin America, noting its ultimate neglect of the Cuban cause in the 1890s. Thus, Dalia Antonia Muller performs nothing short of a feat of great historiography when bringing Cuban independence back into the distinct Latin American context in which it unfolded. Her book Cuban Émigrés and Independence in the Nineteenth-Century Gulf World is a capacious history of revolutionary politics taking place transnationally at the hands of Cuban migrants, refugees, and exiles who created diasporic communities linking Mexico to the Caribbean and ...

The metafictional moment restages the origin of Muñoz’s roman à clef and provides a comically self-deprecating yet accurate summary of the novel’s plot: “Professor-turned-writer explores his bisexual nature, confronts a painful truth about his past, and finds happiness in parenthood ” (emphasis in original, 327).While undoubtedly part of the fun of this novel is attempting to decode the real figures and events that inspired their fictional counterparts, the formal ...

    • Abstract: El arte de inventar en la vida cotidiana y en la producción cultural en Cuba durante y después del Periodo Especial en Tiempos de Paz (1990–2015) constituye, según la autora, el vértice que permite metamorfosear el formato aleatorio de una “colección de ensayos” en una “monografía” coherente temáticamente. Dos objetivos centrales han llamado su atención: la extraordinaria creatividad de los cubanos para “resolver” las carencias cotidianas con humor e ingenio, y las novedosas y originales “invenciones” de carácter lingüístico, literario y artístico que usan la precariedad de recursos como un estímulo para la imaginación. A pesar de que el abordaje de la “inventiva” cubana durante el crítico Periodo Especial ... Read More

Gathering prominent scholars of slavery, these essays do address the theme of historical capitalism and plantation slavery. However, all but one are explicitly framed around second slavery as a tool to better understand modern forms ... Read More
