By Paul Ryer, new article, Space & Place Add comments

Just out this week is “State Power, Private Plots and the Greening of Havana’s Urban Agriculture Movement,” by Adriana Premat, in City & Society, vol. 21, issue 1, pp. 28-57.


Drawing on ethnographic research conducted over a decade from 1997 to 2007 in Havana, Cuba, this paper applies Henri Lefebvre’s insights on the social production of space to the processes involved in the creation of officially-sanctioned sustainable urban agriculture sites. Without denying the important function of the state in these processes, this paper highlights the significant role played by a range of non-state actors, and interests, largely left out from most scholarly accounts of Cuba’s recent agricultural developments. In this manner, the paper offers a more refined understanding of the influence and the limits of the Cuban state at the current historical juncture.
