Description:

My research explores Cuba’s international relations with Africa during the Cold War from a visual perspective, examining a previously neglected collection of political posters that were published in Havana by the Organizacion de Solidaridad de los Pueblos de Asia, Africa y America Latina (OSPAAAL) between 1967 and 1987. I am interested in research into political posters and poster art, Cuban cultural and foreign policy, and the politics of aesthetics in international relations.
