Lecture: "La huella africana en el español de Cuba" by
Ana María González Mafud.
Universidad de La Habana, Cuba
November 20, 2018, 11:20-12:35, in Kohlberg 318
In examining the elements that make up and define cultural identity in Cuba, the Cuban variety of the Spanish language occupies a place of unquestionable importance. As an expression of a historical process, of an ethnic syncretism, of a culture coming from three continents (America, Africa, Europe), the Spanish language is also mixed, first presented in contact with the insular aruaco and after with the African languages. It is, in this regard, a conglomerate in which it is possible to distinguish voices from many other origins. In particular, the study of the African footprint that we propose will allow us to approach the heritage of the sub-Saharanisms through the lexicon as well as through phraseological combinations, present today in the Spanish of Cuba both in the field of religiosity and in other very diverse spheres of material culture.
THE LECTURE WILL BE IN SPANISH.
Joseph Pilates believed that our bodies should be as strong and flexible as our minds. His exercise system was designed to help everyone create positive change through movement and focus. Classes will include core strengthening exercises and techniques to release tension in the body, especially focusing on the neck, shoulders, and hips, as well as how to improve everyday actions such as walking, sitting, standing, breathing. We will also work to improve balance, since this is a skill that can be learned at any stage in life.

Many trans folks have conflicted relationships with our families of origin. There are often layers of trauma, misunderstanding, and frustration. Some choose to craft chosen families of our own design. How much should we change for our families and how much can we expect them to change for us? In this interactive workshop, we share personal experiences and strategize about how to navigate the complexity of family in order to build a network of supportive relationships that will nourish us.
