Intimations of Modernity

This chapter continues to explore the effects of economic growth and modernisation on Cuban society. Increased social mobility, especially among the Creole population, is one consequence. Physical mobility also improved, allowing Cubans to travel more easily within and beyond their country. The more Cubans saw of Europe and America, they more they became discontent with the limitations of colonial rule. Many Cubans of this period sent their children abroad to be educated, often in America, because Spain could not meet their needs when it came to new fields of learning and new bodies of knowledge. The chapter discusses how this, as well as consumer culture and an influx of good from outside the country, led to an evolving, less Spain-centric, Cuban identity.

Keywords:   Cuba, Spain, physical mobility, education, modernization, Creole
