Modern journalism was born in Cuba with the Republic, a stage between May 20, 1902, and January 1, 1959. The so-called "Republican press" made a decisive contribution to the history of journalism and its literary and aesthetic character. Newspapers such as "El Mundo," "Diario de la Marina," "Prensa Libre," and "Noticias de Hoy," and weekly publications such as "Carteles" and "Bohemia," welcomed the most diverse political signs of the time. Authors such as Eladio Secades, Sergio Carbó, Lino Dou, Ofelia Rodríguez, and Lino Novás Calvo, among many others, left an invaluable legacy, often unknown.
In this talk, Dr. Salvador Salazar will discuss his book project about the history of the Cuban printed press in the Republic, based on primary sources such as the "Diario de la Marina," one of the most important newspapers of Republican Cuba.
