mportant Dates:
Call for Papers: Published on August 10, 2020
Abstract Submission: November 30th, 2020. Please send to the Center for Martí Studies Affiliate at the University of Tampa at [email protected].
Notification of Acceptance: December 15th, 2020
Confirmation of Participation: December 30th, 2020
Early Registration for Presenters: $50 by December 28, 2021 (Graduate Students: $35)
Note about Registration: Conference organizers strongly encourage presenters and participants to register as soon as possible to aid in the planning of this virtual conference.
Cancellation and refund policies: Conference registration canceled on or before January 8, 2021 is refundable but subject to a 50 % fee. Registrants canceling on or after January 9, 2021 will not receive a refund.
• Technological Requirements for Presenters & Participants: fast computer processing, high-resolution we**am, sufficient network bandwidth, video display screen, and microphone.
The Center for Martí Studies in Tampa is organizing a virtual conference, “Envisaging José Martí in 2021: History, Culture, and Education,” and is seeking to gather those currently engaged in new scholarship, creative, and educational work to share what they have done thus far, and learn about what work they are currently engaged in.
The overall objective is to share established and ongoing scholarship, as well as creative and pedagogical projects related to the Center’s focus, and provide a platform and stimulate discussion regarding potential future projects and directions. The Center’s interests include, but are not limited to, the humanities, social sciences creative arts, education, and digital approaches to these and other related disciplines.
Through the conference's presentations, breakout sessions, roundtable workshop, and many, interspersed networking opportunities, we hope that together we will create synergy and innovative ideas about potential projects and/or collaborative work.
Presentation Modes: Presentation modes include traditional and digital research talks and readings, and digital/online research products, as well as creative works. Presentations will include real time and/or virtual presentations in sequential sessions. At this time, we do not anticipate there will be concurrent sessions. The format of the conference includes robust interaction between Presenters and Participants. Presenters will deliver 20 minute presentations. Participants as well as Presenters will engage in dialogue following each session, including public readings and in breakout rooms, collaborative meetings, and workshop sessions.
Conference Topics:
The conference topics should fit within the timeframe of 1853-1953. The beginning year (1853) was chosen because it marks the year of José Martí’s birth, on whose birthday the conference will begin. The ending year (1953) acknowledges the year Cuban scholar Juan J.E. Casasus published La emigración cubana y la independencia de la patria (La Habana: Editorial Lex, 1953). He was commissioned by the Asociación Nacional de los Emigrados Revolucionarios Cubanos on the island to publish an extremely comprehensive, scholarly work to address the paucity of education, research, or recognition in Cuba of the myriad contributions of the Cuban émigrés of Tampa, Key West, and elsewhere to the cause of Cuba Libre. In that spirit, and because we have assumed this mantle, as well, we encourage submissions across a variety of related disciplines and fields.
Presentations may address the following themes or sub-themes, or you may also propose one that is not listed for consideration:
• newspapers and the shaping of public opinion
• creative works situated in or evoking Tampa and/or Key West
• the Cuban independence period in South Florida, New York, or elsewhere
• race relations in Cuba and/or South Florida at the time of the Cuban Independence Period
• the build up to Americans intervention in Cuba and Puerto Rico and its aftermath
• lesser examined women and men of the Cuban émigré communities
• trans-Caribbean or trans-Atlantic connections in the fight for Cuba Libre
• Intersection of race, gender, class, and/or nation
• ideological conflict or coalescence
• hybridity, hybrid identities
• representations of modernity
• cultural legacy and enduring imaginary
We look forward to hearing from you! Please write to [email protected] with any questions.
Thanks very much!

Thank you so much for allowing me to post.

My motive for posting was to ask if anyone living in Cuba during lockdown would like to contribute a short story or poem about their experience of life under lockdown, or an inspirational story, for our charity book, 'With Love Comes Hope'.

We have over 100 entries from all around the world but sadly, not one from Cuba! It's such an important country, we didn't want to publish without at least one entry.

If you are open to making a contribution, the full details and other contributions can be seen on the following page. Unless requested otherwise, all contributors will be acknowledged in this historic account of life during the pandemic.

100% of royalties will go to the international humanitarian charity, Bridge2, based in Guernsey (details in Facebook group).

Ringing in the New Year with progressive friends since 1983 for me. The one night I absolutely need to be with movement folks.
I moved to NYC from Miami 2 years ago. I'm so happy to have found this organization. Would love to get involved. ❤️🇨🇺
Dear friends of Cuba,

My book, Waking in Havana: A Memoir of AIDS and Healing in Cuba, will be published by She Writes Press on November 12, 2019. Please spread the word about these upcoming book events and visit my website www.elenaschwolsky.com to order the book and subscribe to receive updates.
During the summer of 1982 the Center for Cuban Studies sponsored an opportunity to study Spanish at the Pablo LaFargue Foreign Language Institute in Havana. Can anyone tell me how long that study tour was? Four weeks? Six weeks? Other?
“Amidst all of these different changes and negative headlines really since June of 2017, the good news is, any American can still legally travel to Cuba, and it’s still easier than it was back in 2014.”

We are bringing travelers to Cuba in compliance with all US regulations.

Vintage and Rare Cuban Posters Come To Auction TODAY ! ! !

Rare Political and film silkscreen posters come to auction from PashCo Posters.

MINNEAPOLIS - May 25, 2019 - PRLog -- Rare Political and film silkscreen posters come to auction from PashCo Posters. These rare posters were made by some of the most famous poster artists of the 80's including Eduardo Muñoz Bachs, Emeria, Nestor and others. The film posters advertise important works by Rebeca Chavez, Estela Bravo and others. Most of these are silkscreen posters with heavy ink coverage and fantastic colors.

Some 35 years ago, in the early 80's our collector was an educator and scholar and traveled the world. During some of the most alarming of political times, our collector traversed the halls of universities, museums and print shops, scouring the landscape for film, political and entertainment posters. Once found, they were carefully packed and transported to the USA where they were stored in flat files in an environmentally controlled vault for 30+ years. Only to be released for this auction !

PashCo Posters is pleased to offer these historical and important prints in a single-day auction on the LiveAuctioneers platform. Visit the site now and place your pre-bids, and join us on the day of the auction - ONLINE - where each item will come to the block for your bidding. MAY 29 4pm CST. LIVE DATE: MAY 29 8pm CST. Join them here:

General information

From its conception the Center for Cuban Studies has stressed the importance of Cuban art and culture, early on collecting posters, photographs, prints, drawings, paintings, ceramics and other examples of the visual arts in Cuba, as well as thousands of slides, catalogs and other information about Cuban artists. All of this material is organized so that it can be both exhibited and accessible to researchers, and the Cuban Art Space has a regular program of exhibits open to the public.

The Center’s own collection contains hundreds of works donated by Cuban artists and by U.S. travelers to Cuba as well as thousands of posters and photographs. Many of these works are available as exhibits which travel around the country.

The Cuban Art Space opened in 1999 as a gallery of regularly scheduled exhibits and cultural programs. In 1991, the Center spearheaded a successful lawsuit against the U.S. Treasury Department. The decision in this lawsuit legalized the importation and sale of original Cuban art. Once the Center’s Art Space opened, it began to exhibit at first its own collection and over the years has continued to bring in the works of Cuban artists.
