Virtual Book Presentation | The Body Never Forgets: Forced Labor, the New Man, and Memory in Cuba

April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Dr. Abel Sierra Madero’s new work reconstructs the systemic and structural character of forced labor and, more broadly, state violence in Cuba. The book focuses on the Military Units to Aid Production (the UMAPs, their Spanish acronym), which operated between 1965 and 1968 in the province of Camagüey, as repressive enclaves of a totalitarian society. Dr. Lillian Guerra will present the book.
