Cuban Studies 43
de la Fuente, Alejandro
Cuban Studies is the preeminent journal for scholarly work on Cuba. Each volume includes articles in English and Spanish and a large book review section. In addition to papers in history, culture and politics, this volume contains a central dossier on demography. This dossier charts some of the important changes experienced by the Cuban population—a concept that includes those living abroad—and some of the challenges posed by those changes (such as aging, or the changing composition of the expatriate community).
Alejandro de la Fuente is the Robert Woods Bliss Professor of Latin American History and Economics and professor of African and African American studies at Harvard University and director of the Afro-Latin American Research Institute in the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research. He is the author of Havana and the Atlantic in the Sixteenth Century and A Nation for All: Race, Inequality, and Politics in Twentieth-Century Cuba, and is the editor of Queloides: Race and Racism in Cuban Contemporary Art.
“A new editorial team led by Alejandro de la Fuente draws on scholarship from Cuba and around the world to make this multidisciplinary journal a must-read for those looking beyond the headlines for a deeper understanding of the rapid changes taking place on the island.”—Foreign Affairs

Cuban Studies 43 is the first volume of the Cuban Studies series produced under a new editorial team based at Harvard University. In addition to papers in history, culture and politics, this volume contains a central dossier on demography. This dossier charts some of the important changes experienced by the Cuban population—a concept that of course includes those living abroad—and some of the challenges posed by those changes (such as aging, or the changing composition of the expatriate community). A paper in the dossier looks carefully at infant mortality figures and raises poignant questions concerning methodologies and results.
