New Book on Urban Anthropology in Cuba

Cuban anthropology, new book 2 Comments »

A new book on urban anthropology was just published and presented in Havana last March 12th, 2010. The author is Avelino Couceiro Rodriguez, a historian and scholar affiliated with the Fernando Ortiz Foundation, the University of Havana School of Communication, and the Plaza Municipal Culture Council. The title is “Hacia una Antropologia Urbana de Cuba”, and the publisher, the Fernando Ortiz Foundation.

According to our colleague Pierre Sean Brotherton (Yale U.) who attended the event and kindly sent us the picture below, “the book advocates for an urban anthropological approach that tackles “the everyday” in Cuba.  This move towards analyzing the banality of everyday practices as objects of scholarly inquiry is innovative, in the context of Cuban anthropology” -something corroborated by the good turn out at the event.  Sean reports that the book was eloquently presented by Miguel Barnet.
