China Cuba: Trajectories of Post- Revolutionary Governance

China Cuba: Trajectories of Post- Revolutionary Governance

Friday, April 17th, 2015 and Saturday April 18th
Registration required. Please contact Jimena León at cipr@tulane.edu

Description:
American academia has developed thriving communities of scholars studying China and Cuba. These communities have, unfortunately, worked in isolation, as attested by the absence of a single monograph that engages in a systematic reflection on the parallels and differences between these two regimes. Sinologists believe in the uniqueness of China and Cubanists similarly stress the specificities of the Cuban experience. And yet, China and Cuba are two communist regimes that were born through revolution and that have survived for a quarter of a century past the fall of communist regimes in Europe and Mongolia. What parallels and differences exist in the survival strategies of the two regimes? And what opportunities for mutual learning might be presented by a close examination of the reform trajectories of Cuba and China? This conference will provide answers to these questions by bringing together American Sinologists and Cubanists, as well as scholars from China and Cuba.
