Event Description

The Department of Modern Languages and the Cuban Research Institute at Florida International University are pleased to announce the conference Reading Cuba. Moving beyond the study of literature as an isolated cultural product, this conference proposes to examine the complex connections between culture and social praxis in Cuban and Cuban-American literature. In the spirit of reading literary texts from an interdisciplinary perspective, conference participants will reevaluate Cuban texts as spaces of interactions where aesthetic, social, and cultural elements collide.

Keynote speakers included Dr. Eliana Rivero, University of Arizona and Dr. Rafael Rojas, Centro de Investigacion y Docencia Economicas, Mexico
