Privileging Myth, Memory and Inclusion in the Cuban Nation, 1817-2017 

with Jean Stubbs

 

WHEN: Wednesday, March 29

TIME: 1:30-2:20
WHERE: Clearihue Building B215

DETAILS: In Cuba, as throughout the Americas, peoples have grappled with colonial and post-colonial politics of exclusion along the lines of ethnicity, race and gender. Writing in the 1940s, Cuban ethnologist Fernando Ortiz, pioneering the term ‘Afro-Cuban’, articulated a plea for an end to racial essentialism and denigration, outlining five phases in his theory of transculturation: hostility, compromise, adaptation, vindication and integration. In the spirit of Cuba’s nineteenth-century founding father José Martí’s ‘más que blanco, más que negro, cubano’ (more than white, more than black, Cuban), Ortiz saw integration as a ‘rite of social communion’, the tomorrow that was dawning, a third identity and culture, where racial factors would lose their ill-intent. Three quarters of a century later, it is a phase proving highly elusive, in terms of ethnicity, race and gender. And yet the myth and memory of an inclusive cubanía (Cuban identity) is also proving a powerful force of cohesion and hope for a better future. In this context, the paper takes a longue durée approach to exploring how the Cuban nation has been forged against a backdrop of major political convulsions, with waves of in- and out-migration (forced and voluntary), and how this has shaped Cuban society and thinking along race, gender, national and transnational lines up to the present day.
