      Abstract: Seguramente no es casualidad que este número de Cuban Studies incluya dos dosieres destinados a estudios urbanos. Los temas de urbanización, conservación, capacidad constructiva, sostenibilidad y desarrollo urbano adquieren visibilidad e importancia en el campo de los estudios cubanos, en la misma medida en que las ciudades de la isla experimentan un profundo e inexorable deterioro material, agudizando viejos problemas (como el déficit habitacional) y generando nuevos desafíos en áreas como la sanidad y seguridad ciudadanas. La muerte, a inicios del 2020, de tres niñas que transitaban por el barrio Jesús María, en la Habana Vieja, producto del derrumbe del balcón de un edificio en demolición, volvió a poner estos ...

  • Prolegomenon: Havana, Body and Soul: From Urban Theory to Social Practice,
           and Back Again

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this sense, nothing said of Aglaura is true, and yet these accounts create a solid and compact image of a city, whereas the haphazard opinions which might be inferred from living there have less substance. This is the result: the city that they speak of has much of what is needed to exist, whereas the city that exists on its site, exists less.Cities are dynamic organic entities, at once physical as well as ideational, and always in motion. Latin American cities are peculiar expressions of European forms of urbanism, given such factors as the colonial context of their foundation and their subsequent instrumentalization in the formation and maintenance of empire, the usual (often violent) repurposing of ...

  • Plaza, Paseo, and Street: Urban Palimpsests of Nineteenth-Century Havana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1843, a writer by the name of P. Riesgo, recorded a spectacle that he observed in the streets and plazas of Havana, Cuba: "Numerous groups of negro men and women cross this big city in all directions, to the beat of the bass drum. They are ludicrously dressed, with a profusion of ribbons, glass beads, mirrors, old feathers and multicolored strips of cloth. In the middle of each of these groups, there is one of colossal stature whose face is covered with a kerchief, or painted white and flesh-color, making it laughable and ridiculous in the extreme."1 Though racist and condescending, Riesgo's words allow us to glean some insight into the material and spatial dimensions of the cabildos de nación (councils of ...

  • "In Order to Dominate It": Empire, Race, and Power in the Botanical Garden
           of Havana in the Nineteenth Century

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1818, an article on botanical gardens reprinted in a periodical in Havana stated that such gardens served "as a place to study nature in all of its productions in order to dominate it."1 Study and domination indeed would remain the dominant motives of the group of white elite men who oversaw the botanical garden of Havana for the next forty years.In this article I place scholarship tracing the history of Havana's botanical garden in conversation, for the first time, with discussion in the history of science about how botanical gardens around the world served as nodes in exchange networks and as tools to extend imperial power.2 Despite increasing attention paid to this underlying political valence of botanical ...

      Abstract: It took every metaphor of art, music, dance, and poetry to describe the sublime and terrifying experience of October 20, 1926, when one of the worst hurricanes in Havana's history (El Ciclón de 26) held the city captive:That Dantesque vision was yet seared into the retinas of Havana's citizens, of their city turned into a tragic dancer by the demented winds of Aquilon. The fury of the elements forced her to endure cruel hours of horrendous nightmare, an unbelievable Zarabanda; the implacable scourge gave the chaotic and disconcerting impression of a Futurist painting. The entire city was, in fact, dislocated, powerless to free herself from the onslaught of the monster, she surrendered to him and, in the beat of ... Read More

      Abstract: In January 1968, the building Pabellón Cuba hosted Del tercer mundo, an immersive, graphic exhibition that visually evoked the concept of the "Third World." Visitors encountered a vibrant array of images: a large-scale reproduction of Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam from the Sistine Chapel, light-boxes featuring image or text, photographic images of everyday life and struggles in the developing world, bright neon lights. The cacophony of thoughtfully curated images was coordinated with both cinematic presentations and sound installations. Beyond portraying the plight and promise of the Third World, the exhibition presented an alluring aural and visual proclamation for a decolonizing world. The exhibition ... Read More

      Abstract: Dicen que la autopista va a atravesar la ciudad de arriba abajo. Lo que queda de la ciudad. Por el día avanzan los bulldozers barriendo parques, edificios, shopping centers. Por las noches yo deambulo en las proximidades del mar, entre los escombros, las maquinarias, los contenedores, tratando de imaginar desde ahí la magnitud de lo que se avecina. No cabe duda de que la autopista será algo monstruoso.Situada a mediados del siglo XXI, una novela reciente de Jorge Enrique Lage abre sus páginas con la apocalíptica construcción de una enorme autopista que, sin destino aparente, cruza al tiempo que devasta la ciudad de La Habana —o lo que queda de ella, según sugiere la voz narrativa. El lector pronto descubre la ... Read More

Patrons drink espresso and rum in the open air on the rooftop or surf the internet on MacBook Pros on the members-only second floor (Figure 2). This coworking space is enclosed by large industrial windows and is lit by artisanal teardrop filament lightbulbs that hang from the ceiling.

Es difícil hablar hoy en Cuba de un activismo naif, desentendido de conceptos y análisis críticos y autocríticos en sus prácticas más diversas. Tampoco la academia es la misma. Al menos una parte de ella es cada vez más consciente de cómo las prácticas sociales y culturales, junto a las movilizaciones de ideas y acciones comunitarias, construyen nuevos significados y apropiaciones de líneas teóricas propuestas por ...

  • Havana's Last Conga: Trans Engagements and Queer Moves in
           Twenty-First-Century Cuba

      Abstract: Pedro Lemebel's pink unicorn plays in public bathrooms and city parks (237–241), where moans of pleasure add to the soundwaves of a queer sensibility that travels far and wide. A pink unicorn appears sublimely as a queer fable felt by queer folk dancing to the exhilarating rhythm of Gloria Estefan's "Conga" at an Orlando queer nightclub, where tears of queer loss evoke Silvio Rodríguez's "Unicornio."1 Each sound beat condenses a mood, a phantasmatic affectivity, that in turn propels a movement of bodies. But these songs could very much represent the polarities of a Cuban imaginary resting, on the one hand, on a nostalgia for the past, and an uncertain futurity, on the other. These extremes are better described as a ... Read More

      Abstract: It is the summer of 2019 in Havana. From a modest house in a peripheral neighborhood of the city, an architect in her seventies reflects on the challenging conditions for architectural practice on the island. "For many years, architecture was sick and locked in a cage," Elena laments.1 Recalling the prominent names of Cuba's modern movement of the 1940s and 1950s, she continues: "We used to have the Romañaches, the Batistas, the Gutiérrezes, up until the point when someone decided that architecture had to be all about technology, and not about artistic expression."2 She looks somber, almost disheartened, when she talks about the more recent history and current state of Cuban architecture. All throughout the 1980s ... Read More

Para el mundo intelectual y cultural de nuestra región el proceso caribeño fue un evento nodal en la reflexión y definición de su función en cada una de sus sociedades.

      Abstract: Entre 1921 y 1922, Walter Benjamin proyectó una revista titulada Angelus Novus, inspirada por el cuadro de Paul Klee que el filósofo asumiría como metáfora de la historia. En la presentación de aquella revista frustrada, Benjamin recordaba, como antecedente, la gran revista romántica Athenäum de Berlín, impulsada por los hermanos Schlegel, Novalis, Schelling y Schleiermacher a fines del siglo XVIII. A partir de la experiencia de aquella publicación, el marxista alemán intentaba formular la definición de una revista intelectual. Aunque la publicación estaría dedicada, fundamentalmente, a poesía, literatura y filosofía, Benjamin apuntaba que su práctica fundamental sería la crítica, ya que esta era la única capaz de ...

El triunfo del movimiento revolucionario en la isla fue recibido con entusiasmo y los foros de la opinión pública, en particular la prensa escrita, dieron cabida a la intensa reflexión que generó desde el primer momento la Revolución cubana. En México los acontecimientos del día a día revolucionario fueron objeto de una intensa discusión política, en una coyuntura en la que la movilización de diversos grupos sociales que venía del año anterior agudizó el cuestionamiento de la legitimidad y los alcances sociales del régimen emanado de la revolución de 1910.

A partir de la Revolución rusa, intelectuales, cronistas, políticos, expertos y militantes de todo el mundo convirtieron el acto de viajar en una forma de acceder a mundos en radical transformación social y económica.2Esta amalgama entre viaje y revolución tuvo en la Argentina notables protagonistas.

      Abstract: En 2010 Frank Delgado lanzó su canción "La farándula habanera" en el disco Mi mapa de sello independiente. En esta canción, como en muchas otras desde que comenzó su carrera musical en los años ochenta, Delgado hace nostálgicas alusiones a su ciudad: La Habana, Cuba. Sus referencias poetizadas se pierden entre el ocaso de la utopía y la idealización de los tiempos previos a la Revolución cubana de 1959.Otra canción del cubano Delgado, homónima al mismo disco, "Mi mapa", plantea la posibilidad de imaginar al espacio desde perspectivas distintas a las cartografías tradicionales: "A veces cuando estoy vencido / me da por consultar tu mapa / y espero que respetes el tratado / sobre náufragos prohibidos, / sobre ...

      Abstract: This study focuses on how consumers perceive the availability and quality of drinking water in Cuba. Data is based exclusively on perceptions concerning water quality. We began the study because we believed there was a significant discrepancy between the quality of drinking water in Cuba as reported by the government and that perceived by people who depend on clean, safe water in their daily lives. Our study suggests that the perceived quality of drinking water among Cuban residents and visitors is poor. This contrasts sharply with the Cuban government's reports to international institutions. At the time we collected our data, water was available in some households in Havana and other cities for no more than a few ... Read More

      Abstract: In 1958, Alberto Garcia Navarro was a bit busy as Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista's ambassador in San José. Pressured by ex-president José Figueres, the Costa Rican government had asked for the removal of Garcia Navarro's military attaché, leaving most consular affairs in the ambassador's hands. It thus fell upon him alone to request visas sending nineteen Cuban exiles out of Costa Rica. Sixteen were supposed to head to what had long been a reliable destination for Batista's opponents, Mexico. That country's chargé d'affaires, though, had grown frustrated with the number of Cubans dumped into the country. He revoked the requests for asylum and declared, "Mexico was no longer willing to receive the human waste that ... Read More

Una de ellas es la de prestar protección a los que acogen a la jurisdicción de un Estado, por ser perseguidos por el gobierno del país al que pertenecen. No todos los diplomáticos cumplen con ello.

      Abstract: Helen Yaffe's highly publicized new book revolves around an unsolved question: in the wake of the Soviet Union's collapse and the severe economic crisis that followed, how did Cuba's socialist system survive' This vital query will continue to occupy, and likely confound, historians and researchers for years to come. For while Yaffe covers considerable ground, We Are Cuba!—like its title, a favorite new slogan of President Miguel Díaz-Canel—largely echoes the Cuban government's response. This leaves plenty of room for critical interpretations that more thoughtfully thread the needle between sympathetic claims of revolutionary resilience and accounts emphasizing totalitarian staying power alone.A lecturer of economic ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Megan Feeney's Hollywood in Havana is a history of Cuba's engagement with the US film industry during the Republican period (1902–1958). The book argues for the centrality of US films to the development of Cuban notions of democracy, masculinity, and national independence that constituted what she calls "revolutionary Cuban nationalism," which climaxed with the Cuban Revolution, against the government of Fulgencio Batista. Feeney explains how the impact of the US film industry on the island was shaped by the ambiguous approaches of Cuban intellectuals and film critics toward the United States, which they interpreted as a model of both democracy and modernity, as well as a threat to national sovereignty. She shows ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Isabel Story's Soviet Influence on Cuban Culture is a welcome contribution to the fields of Cold War studies and Cuban studies. Only recently have scholars of Latin America begun to decenter the Cold War away from the superpower US-USSR economic and political conflict to explore the cultural links between the Socialist Bloc and the Global South. Within Cuban studies, most scholars have prioritized the analysis of Cuba-US cultural relations over those of Cuba-USSR, even though there were far-reaching art-exchange agreements as early as 1961 between Cuba and the Soviet Bloc. Story advances these historiographies by examining the extent to which the USSR influenced the development of revolutionary culture, focusing on ... Read More

      Abstract: In key moments of her career, the anthropologist Ruth Behar has gifted readers with volumes that refract the essence of a deeply felt inner life. Echoes of earlier works, such as The Vulnerable Observer (1996), An Island Called Home: Returning to Jewish Cuba (2007), and her young adult novel Lucky Broken Girl (2017), resound in this recent collection of poems. Mostly written twenty years earlier, when her impending fortieth birthday produced an intense "pressure of mortality" in her consciousness, Behar's poems find inspiration in the sanctuary of emotional journeys. Committed to collecting and healing the scattered, if vibrant, fragments of a Cuban identity defined as much by her grandparents' immigration to Cuba ... Read More

      Abstract: I have said many times that Alexis Esquivel Bermúdez (born in Pinar del Río, 1968) is a historian who paints. He is a colleague, a fellow historian. It would take me dozens of pages to explain what he captures in several square inches of canvas. His works frequently address established, sacred historical narratives, contesting them, offering alternative interpretations and visions. At the center of these revisionist approaches, of these historiographical canvases and installations, are concerns over racial justice and inclusion. Esquivel revisits the nation from and through the experiences, dreams, anxieties, and demands of Cubans of African descent. Official histories depict Afro-Cubans as equal members of the ... Read More
