There are many ways in which humor manifests itself in Cuban and Cuban American literature and performance, and there are many reasons why. This humor, often referred to as choteo, frequently serves as more than mere comic relief and can express a criticism of a social, political, economic, and/or cultural concern both on the island and in the diaspora.

This session takes the image of the “palimpsest” as its semantic inspiration to problematize the layerings of power that simultaneously obscure, erase, and recode the experiences of postcolonial queer bodies. As Judith Butler demonstrates in her engagement with Levinasian ethics, the structure of address between the “I” and the Other is an interruption of narratives that behooves the I’s need to be recognized by an interlocutor.
