Event Description

This new bilingual volume compiles critical essays by 21 scholars specializing in Cuban culture, who invite readers to rethink and update their notions of the Cuban nation. Reading Cuba brings together diverse approaches to Cuba's literary and cultural production inside and outside the island, including theater, documentary film, and the Internet.The contributors examine processes and phenomena that are traditionally studied separately, isolated in the margins of various humanistic disciplines. The volume is based on a selection of papers presented at a 2016 interdisciplinary conference cosponsored by FlU Cuban Research Institute and Department of Modern Languages. Reading Cuba features prominent literary and cultural critics such as Ekana Rivero, Rafael Rojas, Laura Alonso Gallo, Belen Rodriguez Moureilo Santiago Juan-Navarro, Maida Watson, Raul Rubio, and Vitalina Alfonso, as well as younger scholars.
