The Racial Politics of Division: Interethnic Struggles for Legitimacy in Multicultural Miami

Speaker: Monika Gosin

This virtual zoom book talk with Monika Gosin will examine her new book The Racial Politics of Division: Interethnic Struggles for Legitimacy in Multicultural Miami. The Racial Politics of Division deconstructs antagonistic discourses that circulated in local Miami media between African Americans, "white" Cubans, and "black" Cubans during the 1980 Mariel Boatlift and the 1994 Balsero Crisis. Monika Gosin challenges exclusionary arguments pitting these groups against one another and depicts instead the nuanced ways in which identities have been constructed, negotiated, rejected, and reclaimed in the context of Miami's historical multiethnic tensions
