GC: Cuba and Its Exile: Political Generations

October 20, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Bildner Center presents Cuba and Its Exile: Political Generations.

Silvia Pedraza
University of Michigan

Philip Kasinitz, Professor of Sociology at the Graduate Center and Hunter College, CUNY

Mauricio Font

From the Bildner Center: “In this talk, Professor Silvia Pedraza argues that to understand Cubans both in the island and in exile, social scientists need to take into account not only the usual dimensions of social class, race, ethnicity, and gender, but also political generations. As defined by Karl Mannheim and others, political generations are constituted by people of the same age who, in their adolescence, experienced dramatic historical events that marked their consciousness. Pedraza analyzes the various political generations that emerged over time in the Cuban revolution and the creation of its exile community.”
