Professor Rubio Discusses New Book on Cuban History, Literature, and the Arts

The Graduate Center
365 Fifth Avenue
ROOM 9100, Skylight Room
4:00 PM


John Jay Professor Raul Rubio and his co-authors will discuss their new book Handbook on Cuban History, Literature, and the Arts at the CUNY Graduate Center. The book explores key themes in the current debate about Cuba's contemporary cultural and historical dynamics. For more details about the book discussion, visit here.

Professor Rubio’s chapter titled “Cuban Ethnicities in Cinematic Context, 1930s-1950s” considers the meanings behind the display of ethnicity as represented in three films that span the 1930s-50s, the latter part of Cuba’s Era as a Republic (1902-1959). While examining the potential meanings of these representations and their formats, Rubio explores how the urban realm, Havana, also plays an important role in these depictions. Rubio is an associate professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures.
