Feria Internacional del Libro dedicated to María del Carmen Barcia

By Paul Ryer, Conferences & CFPs, Notes & Queries, Universidad de La Habana 1 Comment »

Ed. note (Paul Ryer): I was fortunate to take a class with María del Carmen Barcia, a professor of history at the University of Havana, and am thrilled to see that she is one of two scholars to whom this year’s feria del libro is dedicated.  In addition to the scholarship for which she is being recognized here, I can add that Prof. Barcia is a fabulous teacher, with a nuanced yet rigorous approach to historical materials, and although she has high expectations of students in the classroom, she is also personally warm and without the inflated ego of so many successful academics.  So well deserved…  ¡Felicidades, Profesora!

La 19ª   Feria Internacional del Libro, Cuba 2010, se realizará del 11 al 21 de febrero en La Habana bajo el lema Leer es crecer. Estará dedicada a  los autores María del Carmen Barcia, Premio Nacional de Ciencias Sociales 2003, y Reynaldo González Zamora, Premio Nacional de Literatura 2003. En esta edición, el País Invitado de Honor será Rusia….

Archivocubano on Fundación Fernando Ortiz and Museo Montané

Anthropological institutions, Blogs, History, Universidad de La Habana No Comments »

This Italian site, Archivocubano, has a post on the first decade of the Fundación Fernando Ortiz, written a few years ago by Jesús Guanche.  And also a post on the history of the Museo Montané at the Universidad de La Habana, by Armando Rangel Rivero.  To date, I have not been able to find a direct URL for the museum (of, for that matter, for the Centro de Antropología in Cerro).  Does anyone have other links to/from/about these institutions?  If so, please please post them in a quick comment!

CHALLENGES OF THE RACIAL PROBLEM IN CUBA

Esteban Morales Domínguez

University of Havana

BY WAY OF INTRODUCTION

My book, on which I wish to comment, was published February 15, 2008, by the Casa de la Fundación Don Fernando Ortiz under the same tit le as this summary. It included a magnificent introduction by Dr. Fernando Martinez Heredia. The public crowded the Casa showing interest in the topic and on the same day, nearly half of the published copies, which totaled only a modest 1,000, were sold.

In reality, no book attempting to examine the contemporary racial issue has been published in more than 45 years. In Cuba, works that address the contemporary racial problem in Cuba are found mostly in magazines, are very few in number and are found most notably in Temas and Catauro.[1]

Outside of Cuba, there have been publications covering the topic in a contemporary way. Aline Helg, Alejandro de la Fuente and Carlos Moore stand out for their voluminous researches. But none of them shares with us the vicissitudes of daily life in Cuba, and this is clear in their writings. These are valuable contributions, though we may or may not share some of their views. Aside from the difficulties of taking up the topic within current Cuban society – a matter we will address later – in practice, we have ceded to others the treatment of a problem of vital importance in the life of the country…  MORE.  For complete text:  challenges-of-the-racial-problem-in-cuba .
