Book Talk | Circulating Culture: Transnational Cuban Networks of Exchange

October 31, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Tracing the flows of people, material items, and digital content between Havana and Miami, as well as between Cuba and Panama, Guyana, and Mexico, Circulating Culture explores how and why these circuits are a part of everyday life for millions of Cubans. Drawing on extensive ethnographic research in these locations, Jennifer Cearns highlights groups of Cuban society that are often overlooked, considering what Cuban culture and identity mean in a transnational setting. By focusing on everyday objects and the strategies used to move them across borders, this book demonstrates the worldmaking of marginalized Cuban communities who have long been building their own infrastructures of possibility.

This event is located in the Friends of Music Room on the second floor of University Auditorium. It is hosted by the UF Center for Latin American Studies in partnership with University Press of Florida.
