Mulata Nation: Visualizing Race and Gender in Cuba

This is a past event.

Friday, October 12, 2018 at 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Books & Books, Coral Gables 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables

A book presentation with author Alison Fraunhar, Associate Professor in the Dept. of Art and Design at St. Xavier University in Chicago.

Repeatedly and powerfully throughout Cuban history, the mulata, a woman of mixed racial identity, features prominently in Cuban visual and performative culture.  Tracing the figue, Dr. Fraunhar looks at the representation and performance in both elite and popular culture. She also tracks how characteristics associated with these women have accrued across the Atlantic world.
