Professor Gabilondo’s essay on Miami appears in Cuba’s Temas
Professor Jose Gabilondo was one of five academics from FIU invited to write for a special issue on Cubans in Miami put out in June by Catalejo, the blog operated by Temas. Published in Havana, Catalejo and Temas are prominent fora for debates among Cuban and Cuban-American academics and intellectuals about culture, ideology, and society. His essay – Miami – entre lo crudo y lo cocido´´ (´Miami – between the raw and the cooked´) examines the different ways in which Cubans react to nativism and ethnic backlash in Miami.
‘Sometimes it seems that Miami is still fighting the Cold War, so it’s exciting and encouraging to be part of expanding intellectual exchange with colleagues on the island.’
