Missing from the worldwide commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Cuban revolution are the voices of men and women living on the island.
The research project Memories of the Cuban Revolution redresses that absence. Drawing on 100+ in-depth life history interviews collected across the island from 2004 through 2008, the study analyses how Cubans of different generations, social positions, racial, gender and religious identities, and political views narrate their experiences of living the revolution.
More information about the project
The life histories were collected by a team of eight Cuban and two British academics, under the direction of Elizabeth Dore. While members of the research team shared a common goal-- to understand the diversity of experiences of ‘living the revolution.
