Caliban's Books: Adaptations of Shakespeare in Cuba

Caliban's Books: Shakespeare in Cuba will be a book length study of Shakespeare adaptations in Cuba. The international reception and adaptation of Shakespeare is a thriving area of scholarly study right now, but since little work has been done on Latin American adaptations of Shakespeare and even less work has been done specifically on Cuban adaptations of Shakespeare, my book will be an important contribution to this field. During the award period I will be writing a chapter on Cuban appropriations and adaptations of Shakespeare's The Tempest and making revisions to the rest of my book manuscript. This book will help to fill a substantial gap in Shakespeare scholarship and to bridge the divide between Cuba and the United States.
