Between The Eastern Bloc and the Global South. Reframing Research on Cuba

Exploratory Workshop
Datum: 05.12.2023
Ort: Potsdam

Organizer:
José M. Faraldo, Universidad Complutense de Madrid / z.Z. Fellow am ZZF
Thomas Lindenberger, Hannah-Arendt-Institut für Totalitarismusforschung (HAIT)
Annette Vowinckel, Leibniz-Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung Potsdam (ZZF)

The Workshop is supported by the Researchgroup „HistGlobal“

Workshop language: English


This exploratory workshop wants to explore Cuba through Eastern European eyes, applying the research experience on the European communism to a socialism that is still active in its most structural aspects. By presenting some new projects, we also want to think about where historical research on communist Cuba can go in the global context. The seminar is aimed at all those interested in the history of Cuba, the Caribbean, state socialisms in general and exchanges between East, West and Global South.
