Leaders of Cuba’s 1959 Revolution cast the teacher as a key player for the overhaul of Cuban society. As contemporary Cuban writers and filmmakers unmask the Revolution’s shortcomings, they recast the teacher in more flexible, creative roles as a way to imagine a more open, participatory Cuban community.

Dr. Vicky Unruh is a professor of Latin American literary and cultural studies at the University of Kansas. Her research and teaching fields include 20th-century Latin American literary culture, narrative and theatre, as well as Cuban literature. She has published three books and numerous articles and chapters and received awards for teaching and mentoring. Unruh spent her childhood in Puerto Rico, served in the Peace Corps in Guatemala, and has conducted research in Cuba and Peru.
