Colloquium: The Future of the Puerto Rican Body

March 9, 2018 · 9:00 am-5:30 pm · 219 Aaron Burr

Program in Latin American Studies

PART II of Bankruptcy and Citizenship: Puerto Rico, A 21st Century Colony?

Little attention had been paid to Puerto Rico before Hurricane María, perhaps due to the complex colonial relationship with the United States.

This colloquium seeks to gain a better understanding of the political, material, and cultural dimensions of the fiscal crisis and of citizenship and the construction of the Body Politic in a colony. Panels also include questions related to human rights, gender, public health, migration, community power, and solar heating. Economists, legal scholars, academics, and activists from the island will be speaking.

Co-sponsored by the Campus Conversation on Identities Initiative, and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese
