This course examines Cuban history, literature, and culture since the Revolution, both on the island and in the United States diaspora. In political and cultural essays, personal narratives, fiction, poetry, drama, visual art, music, and film, we will seek a comprehensive and diverse view of how Cubans on the island and Cubans in the diaspora understand their situation as people of the same nation divided for fifty years by the Cold War, revolution, and exile. Topics to be considered include the meaning of diasporas in our time, Fidel Castro and the making of the Cuban Revolution, masculinity and gay sexuality in the Revolution and Cuban diaspora, women's dreams, everyday life under communism, Afrocuban culture and religion, Jewish-Cuban revitalization, the Cuban visual arts movement, and the construction and deconstruction of exile identity.
