Cuba: In Transition?

March 30-31, 2006
The Graduate Center, CUNY

This inter­na­tional sym­po­sium focused on the Cuban real­ity from the early 1990s through 2006, pre­sent­ing research on the nature of changes under­way in eco­nom­ics, pol­i­tics and pol­icy mod­els, civil soci­ety, art and lit­er­a­ture, race rela­tions, and national iden­tity and cul­ture, as well as Cuba’s role in world affairs. In four­teen pan­els and var­i­ous other spe­cial events, the expert par­tic­i­pants in this sym­po­sium exam­ined var­i­ous ques­tions regard­ing the pos­si­bil­ity and the real­i­ties of tran­si­tion, eco­nomic and oth­er­wise, in Cuba.


This volume includes papers originally discussed at the symposium, “Cuba in Transition: Pathway to Renewal Long-Term Development and Global Integration” (The Graduate Center, City University of New York, March 30-31, 2006). The essays in this collection explore Cuba’s economic, political, and cultural transformations, and the possibilities and challenges of a transition.
