Jennifer Lambe (PhD, Yale University; AB, Brown University) is an Assistant Professor of Latin American and Caribbean history. Her first book, Madhouse: Psychiatry and Politics in Cuban History (2017), traces the history of mental illness and mental healing in Cuba through the Mazorra Mental Asylum, the only public psychiatric hospital in Cuba until the 1959 Revolution and a key site of political intervention and social reform. She is currently working on new projects related to 1. leisure time in revolutionary Cuba and 2. the transnational history of psychiatric dehospitalization. Lambe also directs a digital humanities project entitled "Beyond the Sugar Curtain: Tracing Cuba-U.S. Connections since 1959,"  and is co-editing a volume, "The Revolution from Within: Cuba, 1959-1980," under contract with Duke University Press.
