Explore the Jewish Presence in Contemporary Cuban Fiction at Faculty Lecture, Oct. 2

Fuentes_Yvette

Yvette Fuentes, Ph.D.

There has been great interest in documenting the Jewish presence within Cuba and the Cuban exile community. What research, however, has been done on the representation of Jews in contemporary Cuban fiction? The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences will host a discussion on this topic as part of its Faculty Lecture Series.

“The Dispersed Nation: The Representation of the Jewish People and Their History in Contemporary Cuban Fiction”
Faculty Lecture Series | Yvette Fuentes, Ph.D., associate professor
Thursday, October 2, 2014
Noon-1:00 p.m.
Alvin Sherman Library | Second Floor Gallery

About the Talk

A number of recent historical texts and documentaries have examined the history of this group’s arrival on the island as well as the departure of the majority into a second or third exile. This lecture will examine several recently published novels by authors––on and off the island––and reflect on how these works suggest a trans-national Jewish and Cuban identity.

The event is free and all are welcome to attend. For more information, contact Stephen Levitt, LL.M., at (954) 262-8210.
