Cuban Cabildos, Cultural Politics, and Cultivating a Transnational Yoruba Citizenry

Migration, Diasporas, and the Importance of Local Knowledge

Senses of HumaNature on Florida’s Silver River: Evocative Ethnography to Craft Place



Studying with Yoruba practitioners in Matanzas, Cuba, I completed my dissertation: Who is Nature? Religion & Ecology in Cuba at UF in 2010. Based on that investigation, I have published one peer-reviewed chapter and two articles in top-tier Anthropology journals. In the book Afro-Descendants, Identity, and the Challenge of Development in the Americas I published the chapter: “Decolonizing the imaging of afrodescendant religions.” In Cultural Anthropology I published the article: “Cuban Cabildos, Cultural Politics and Cultivating a Transnational Yoruba Citizenry” and in the journal Transforming Anthropology, I published the article: “Cuban Voices about Being Cuban and the Future of Cuba.”
