UCL Institute of the Americas
Laurence Whitehead (Oxford), Bert Hoffmann (GIGA, Hamburg), Vegard Bye (Oslo) - Socialist Cuba is undergoing profound change. As the “historic generation” of the Revolution’s leaders is preparing its departure from center stage of politics, the island is in the midst of an ambivalent process of crisis and reform. Where is Cuba heading? What impact will the economic reforms have, and how far will they go? How much change is in store for US-Cuban relations after Obama’s historic visit this year? Cuban and international authors have addressed these and other questions in a recent issue of Third World Quarterly. The editors of this special section will present its key findings and discuss the perspectives of Cuba’s quest to re-define its political, social and economic model.

Book launch: Transformations of Freedom in the Land of the Maroons: Creolization in the Cockpits, Jamaica

Jean Besson (Goldsmiths) - Despite outstanding histories and ethnographies on maroons (escaped slaves and their descendants), there has been little attempt to compare the cultures of modern maroons with the cultures of the descendants of emancipated slaves who are the majority of African-Americans today. There is therefore a gap in the comparative exploration of creolization (‘indigenization’ in Europe’s ‘New World’) in maroon and non-maroon derivations of African-American slave cultures.
