Cuba, Special Period, Cuban identity
For most people outside of Cuba, the island carries an air, and allure, of the unknown. Following Castro’s 1959 socialist revolution, the country underwent a whirlwind transition from a small Caribbean nation with little international sway to the world’s longest standing socialist experiment. As Cuba’s unique political, economic, and cultural shifts forced the construction and reconstruction of its people’s national identity, narratives from Cubans on and off the island portray these shifting conceptions of what it means to be Cuban, and how these various conceptions of national identity affect the relationship between Cubans around the world.
