Dean of the College presents

The Cuban Argument with Itself

A Faculty Seminar
Presented by Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas

[The Cuban Argument with Itself]

Reviewing the history of censorship and political intolerance in Miami and Havana suggests that these two centers of Cuban politics might be engaged in processes of polarization that often operate in concert with each other and have proved integral to the maintenance of the United States trade embargo against Cuba. As one antidote to this long standing polarization, I will review the efforts of Cuban and Cuban American theater artists who have for decades been organizing to subvert the embargo, noting the successful ways these artists have begun to normalize exchange and travel between the United States and Cuba.  

Please join us for a reception at 6:30 p.m. in the Olin Atrium.
