Cuba in a Global Context

Mette Louise Berg

University Press of Florida

The relationship between Cuba and its post-1959 diaspora has been characterized by antagonism and mutual recrimination—especially between the Cuban government and the Miami-based exile community. Dissenting voices, experiences and trajectories, and discussions of gender, class, race, and generations within the diaspora have accordingly tended to be restricted to a relatively small network of US-focused scholars and intellectuals. Yet the Cuban diaspora is more complex than allowed by the dominant exile narrative, the official Cuban government narrative, or media representations. It is characterized by diversity in migration trajectory, legal status, and class position, as well as “race,” religion, and political identification and orientation. New studies have contributed toward a historically embedded and more geographically and socially representative understanding of contemporary Cuba and its diaspora. Cubans living in Spain provide an emergent and more nuanced picture of Cuban diasporic experiences over the past half-century.
