Historias 39 – Michelle Chase and Devyn Spence Benson on the Cuban Revolution

In this ‘State of the Field’ edition, Dr. Michelle Chase and Dr. Devyn Spence Benson spoke with Dustin and Steven about the historiography and current status of scholarship on the Cuban Revolution.

The conversation explores the evolution of the scholarship of Cuban Revolution 60 years on and how many scholars today are less interested in the leadership. Instead, researchers are increasingly interested in how the revolutionary period has been experienced by ordinary Cubans.
