Mayabeque, Una Nueva Provincia En Cuba: Estudio De Caso Sobre La Construcción De La Identidad Regional

Translated title of the contribution: Mayabeque, A New Province In Cuba: Case Study On The Construction Of Regional Identity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The Mayabeque province in Cuba was born out of the administrative division of Havana, a decision applied vertically by the Cuban state. In the process of territorial division, cultural phenomena were forgotten, such as its great cultural diversity and the anchoring of a territorial identity formed by centuries of regional memory and history. The objective of the research was to demonstrate the construction of the new "Mayabequense" territorial identity in the media discourse as a result of this division. Based on Bayart's theory (1996) "the invention of tradition", an analysis was made of the content of the regional written press during the first year of the province's existence. The results show that territorial identity was constructed as a form of improvisation based on the remembrance and resignification of local identities.
