Rodriguez-Plate Presents at Latin American Studies Association

Posted June 5, 2012
Tags Edna Rodriguez-Plate Hispanic Studies

Associate Professor of Hispanic Studies Edna Rodriguez-Plate presented “Nuevos Panoramas, nuevas historias: el cine cubano después del periodo especial” (New Panoramas, New Histories: Cuban Cinema after the Special Period) at the XXX International Congress of the Latin American Studies Association in San Francisco in May.


Her paper examines new forms of filmmaking since the downfall of Cuba’s most important economic trading partner, the Soviet Union. Shifting economic realities have met emerging technologies, resulting in a blossoming of new forms, styles and themes for audio-visual media shot and produced in Cuba. Rodriguez-Plate analyzes some of these new media productions, and inquires how this changes the cultural landscape and identity of Cubans.
