Arnedo-Gómez, Miguel. Uniting blacks in a raceless nation: Afro-Cuban reformulations of Afrocubanismo and mestizaje in 1930s Cuba. p. 33-59 Cuba
Afrocubanismo, Afro-Cubanos, mestizaje, raza, desigualdad

Resumen

This article examines discourses on Afrocubanismo and mestizaje in the writings of little studied 1930s black Cuban intellectuals. The point of departure of the analysis is historian Alejandro de la Fuente's argument that the 1930s Cuban movement of Afro-Cuban cultural revalorisation known as Afrocubanismo opened up opportunities for blacks to express their own visions of Cuban black culture and denounce racial inequalities. The article's introduction explains De la Fuente's argument in the context of his broader approach to Cuban black mobilisation in the aftermath of the Cuban historical episode known as the 1912 race war. It then highlights the need for a more thorough assessment of black Cuban reformulations of Afrocubanismo and mestizaje based on an analysis of essays and articles written by 1930s black Cuban intellectuals. The ensuing sections examine such writings with an emphasis on their treatment of José Martí, black and national identities and mestizaje. The conclusion provides a general assessment of the counter-hegemonic potential of the texts analysed and of the relevance of De la Fuente's perspective for the study of Afrocubanismo, with particular reference to two recent works of criticism.

Resumen

Who is La Malinche/Doña Marina/Malintzin? La Malinche has long symbolized the conquest of the Mexican Indians by Europeans: of invaluable service to the Spaniards, a traitor to her own people. Retracing the construction of her portrayal over time amounts to a paradigm of translation. Varying contexts and interpretations from different periods have assigned her attributes that are positive or negative, sometimes inflating, sometimes deflating her importance. In this article I undertake a re-reading of the myth of La Malinche in writings extending from those of Hernán Cortés to the works of Chicana authors such as Norma Alarcón, Sandra Messinger Cypess, Lucha Corpi, Carmen Tafolla and Gloria Anzaldúa. Through the reinterpretation of numerous texts written by both men and women and ranging from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, the aim of the article is to recover a significant figure in the history of translation. The polyhedral portrayal that has built up around La Malinche reopens the debate about the implications of the various gender-related labels ascribed to her over time.
