In a new post, “The Past and Future of US_Cuba Academic Exchange,” the University of Chicago’s Center for Latin American Studies showcases EthnoCuba:

US-Cuba policy experts have likened the new regulations to Cuba travel policies under the administration of Bill Clinton. During this period, a generous grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation allowed CLAS to administer a program of scholarly exchange between Chicago faculty and graduate students, and scholars at the University of Havana, as well as other universities and cultural institutions in Cuba. Many of those who participated in the program went on to make significant contributions to the field, based on the research they conducted and scholarly connections that they formed as participants in the program.

Among them are cultural anthropologist Ariana Hernández-Reguant, now on the faculty of the School of Communications at UC San Diego, who writes on ideology, media, and cultural production in Cuba, and Paul Ryer, a professor in the Department of Anthropology at UC Riverside, who studies Cuban culture and the African migrant communities on the island. Today, Hernández-Reguant and Ryer co-edit a collective blog, Etnocuba, where Cuba scholars discuss research in the field, their experiences on the island, and the latest happenings in Cuba and in the international Cuban community.

    I am interested in finding SoCal venues for the documentary – Maestra! – The links below show dates and 10 venues now planned. The last date scheduled is in Sta. Cruz April 8 so showings could follow that.

    The film features Norma Guillard talking about her coming of age in the Literacy Campaign as a young woman of 15 who left home to work in the countryside as a literacy teacher, una maestra. Norma is a Cuban social and clinical psychologist, a university professor, a scholar and activist. She works primarily on the issues of gender, race, sexual orientation, and issues of diversity and identity in a Cuban and Caribbean context, and is one of the first Cuban women of her generation to call herself a feminist.

    She is coming to the US in March and April to publicize a documentary on the 1961 Cuban literacy campaign that organized over 100,000 youth to teach illiterate citizens to read and write. Norma participated in the campaign and she is interviewed in the film. Catherine MurphyI also produced and filmed the documentary. I am emailing to see if you know anyone in the Latin American, Women’s Studies, Gender Studies or Education programs that might want to sponsoring Norma and Catherine and to show the film and could possibly help with transportation and lodging.

    Thank you in advance for any ideas/thoughts that would lead to a showing of this informative documentary in San Diego or Riverside.
