Criterios Center to Celebrate Its Tenth Anniversary

HAVANA TIMES — The Criterios Theoretical and Cultural Center has begun preparing for the celebration of its tenth anniversary set for next year, according to a news note released by its director, essayist Desiderio Navarro.

The director, who is also the editor of the magazine with the same name, announced for this reason the center will publish the books Blanco sobre negro: Las imagenes de Africa y de los negros en la cultura popular occidental (White on Black: Images of Africa and Blacks in Western Popular Culture), by Dutch native Jan Nederveen Pieterse; and Fundamentos del saber cinematografico (Fundamentals of Film Know How), by Polish writers Alicja Helman and Andrzej Pitrus.

For the occasion there will also take place the launching of the fourth volume of Los mil y un textos en una noche (The One Thousand and One Texts in a Night), in a now traditional activity where Navarro will offer for free to anyone who attends a CD with 1001 original texts and translations of important theoretical articles and books.
