Panel Discussion: Borders of Cuba and Cubanidad

Thursday, December 1, 2022 at 4:30pm
Romance Languages and Literatures Common Room, 300 High Street, Middletown

FREE!

How do diaspora and exile shape or contest the (imagined) borders of Cuba? Who gets to define “cubanidad,” that is, what it means to be Cuban? Invited speakers grapple with these questions by turning to late nineteenth- to twentieth-century archives and literary works that shed light on the consolidation of anticolonial efforts across the Caribbean, the links between Cuba and the island of Fernando Pó (now Equatorial Guinea), and the shifting racial borders of cubanidad.
