Cuba-Brazil-Angola: Remapping Atlantic Cultural Histories

POR 426/SPA 426/LAS 426

Info tab content
Cuba, Brazil, and Angola share intimately linked cultural histories. Brazil and Cuba received large numbers of enslaved peoples from Angola, crucial agents in forging the two American nations' emerging modern cultures. In the 20th century the newly independent republics of Cuba and Brazil inspired anti-colonial Angolan cultural production. And in the 1970s Cuba sent massive numbers of Cuban troops to fight in the Angolan civil war. This course explores these and other aspects of a shared history characterized by both violence and flows of ideas, aesthetic forms, and political theories beyond nation and empire.
