Cuba in USA: Assimilation, Transculturation and Resistance

Deadline for submissions: November 30th, 2016

The Cuban presence in the United States dates to the early 1800s, when many islanders arrived either as immigrants or exiles. They settled in cities like New Orleans, Philadelphia and New York.  One of these, the Venerable Father Félix Varela (“el que nos enseñó en pensar” according to José de la Luz y Caballero) resided initially in New York, where he advocated for Catholic immigrants and wrote paradoxically against the alien nature of protestantism. The prolonged struggles against the Spanish colonial regime expanded the Cuban émigré community. Many established themselves in cities as remote as Chicago and as close to the island as Tampa and Key West, which became in the late 19th century almost Cuban in nature. The triumph of the Cuban Revoluition in 1959, of course, brought about subsequent waves of immigration to North America, a phenomenon studied in detail by countless scholars.

This issue of Camino Real seeks to explore in particular issues of resistance and adaptation to the U.S. ethno-cultural milieu as evidenced in acculturation, transculturation or repudiation of the chegemonic context. Essays may focus on any facet of the Cuban presence in North America from the early 19th century until the current era.
