Proposals for this thematic issue of our journal, presently in its 50th year in print, will examine multiple aspects of the discovery, exploration, and settlement of Cuba. By extension, we would also include papers that would focus on encounter. We seek both papers that discuss Cuba as a recipient of external influences and cultural contributions as well as papers that investigate Cuba’s influence on other Latin American and African countries in terms of culture, politics, and medicine.
