Former CRI Visiting Scholar Petra Kuivala will lecture on Cuban Catholics as social subjects inhabiting the revolutionary and, later, socialist society in post-1959 Cuba. Drawing on an extensive amount of previously unstudied Cuban archival sources, the lecture will explore the ways in which religious Cubans navigated their social identities and roles in the officially atheist and antireligious environment.
The final version of the program for our virtual conference on "Cuba before and after J11," to be held on February 3–4, 2022, is available here. To register for the conference, please visit https://criconference.eventbrite.com/
We invite applications from pre-candidacy doctoral students at FIU for the in-person Summer Institute at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a two-week intensive training on comparative Latino Humanities Studies research methodologies and theoretical frameworks to be held on June 26-July 10, 2022. This is an all-expense-paid program with the possibility of a one-year pre-doctoral research fellowship as an extra year of funding to any existing assistantship/fellowship funding commitment.
