Few social movements of the 20th century reverberated throughout the globe like the 1959 Cuban Revolution. In this talk, we will discuss the general history of the Revolution, as well as its impacts on daily life in Cuba in the decades that followed Fidel Castro’s rise to power. We will also discuss the economic reforms that have occurred in the last decade under presidents Raúl Castro and Miguel Díaz-Canel, as well as, the negative effects on the Cuban people of current tensions between the U.S. and Cuba.

William Kelly

William Kelly is an historian of urbanism in the context of the 1959 Cuban Revolution. His book project (in progress) explores urban housing struggles, everyday life, and race in Cuba in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s. His project is informed by 15 months of archival research in Cuba, most of which was made possible by a CLIR Mellon Fellowship for Dissertation Research in Original Sources. His work will soon appear in an issue of the peer-reviewed journal Cuban Studies that will highlight unique approaches to the study of the 1959 Cuban Revolution. William holds a PhD in Latin American and Caribbean history from Rutgers University, an MA in history from the University of Chicago, and a BA in anthropology from the University of South Florida.
