An Island in the Stream : Ecocritical and Literary Responses to Cuban Environmental Culture
by Taylor, David (Contributions by), and Slovic, Scott, (Contributions by), and Soriano, Armando Fernandez (Editor)

Overview -
An Island in the Stream, a collaboration between Cuban and American writers and scholars, is a diverse collection of ecocritical and literary responses to the natural environment in Cuba and to Cuban environmental culture. The essays explore Cuba's vibrant cultural history with particular attention to literature and the visual and performing arts, which are viewed through such lenses as ecofeminism, postcolonial ecocriticism, multiculturalism, and the nuclear imaginary, among others. American environmentalists have long viewed modern Cuba as a model of progressive environmental thinking. In the 1990s, the Cuban government made sustainability a centerpiece of national policy initiatives. This book explores some of the historical foundations of contemporary sustainability efforts in Cuba, while also describing the contemporary environmental situation in that part of the world. From Jose Marti to Excilia Saldana, from Antonio Nunez Jimenez to Lydia Cabrera, the articles here aim to provide a starting point for others who wish to learn about Cuban environmental thought. The conjunction of scholarly and creative work is a gesture toward the interdependence of humanities research and artistic expression, both of which seek to encourage environmental and cultural mindfulness and sensitivity.
