Mauricio A. Font and Araceli Tinajero, eds.
Handbook on Cuban History, Literature, and the Arts: New Perspectives on Historical and Contemporary Social Change
This handbook explores key themes in the current debate about Cuba’s contemporary cultural and historical dynamics. Leading academics bring to light significant revisions of the artistic and literary canon and the historical archive, reconsidering often neglected subjects and dynamics in historiography as well as contemporary affairs. The book includes new studies on contentious mobilization, leftist activism, and youth organizations in the prerevolutionary republic. Current analyses include the relation between the Cuban state and intellectuals; institutional legitimation processes; the formation and reconstruction of national identity discourses; and new framings of gender, race, and sexual orientation. Mauricio A. Font (Prof., Queens) serves on the doctoral faculty in sociology. Araceli Tinajero (Prof., City) serves on the doctoral faculty in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages.
