Rebels, Revolutionaries and Exiles in New York, Mexico And Havana: Tracing the Transnational Networks and Diasporas of Activists in the Greater Circum-Caribbean 1918-1940
Between the two world wars Mexico City, Havana and New York City emerged as key hub cities in networks that linked the struggles and exiles of radicals, revolutionaries and vanguard intellectuals. The talk discusses the opportunities and challenges posed by a transnational perspective on recovering the history of these networks and the trajectories of some of the protagonists, organisations and solidarity movements that made up this world of militant travelling cultures.
