Fernando Luis González Mitjáns

Born in La Habana, Cuba, Fernando Luis González Mitjáns emigrated from his homeland at the age of ten, leaving behind his culture and family only to find a new home in Brasília, Brazil. Although he left the country, Cuba never left him and he thus chose an academic career in Sociology and Cultural Studies focused on the study of the island’s history and politics, as well as on the experience of migration itself.

Totally inebriated by colonial history and post-colonial theory, Fernando is always keen to read, argue or write about race, history and politics - especially in Cuba and Latin America. He also thinks that Vargas Llosa’s The War of the End of the World is the best title ever.
