In recognition of Puerto Rican Heritage Day (14 June) we highlight recent public scholarship from three UConn faculty and former students:
From Hilda Lloréns (Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Rhode Island), the article ‘Racialization works differently here in Puerto Rico, do not bring your U.S.-centric ideas about race here!’
and short book Ustedes tienen que limpiar las cenizas! https://editoraemergente.com/product.php?id_product=225
From Ismael García-Colón (Associate Professor of Anthropology, CUNY State Island), the book Colonial Migrants at the Heart of Empire https://sum.cuny.edu/the-us-recruited-400000-puerto-rican-farm-workers-this-is-their-story/
From Charles Robert Venator Santiago (Associate Professor of Political Science and Latina/o Studies, UCONN), Holyoke Hurricane María Response Study (soon to be published with the CUNY Centro de Estudios Puertorriqueños)
Felicidades, Hilda, Ismael y Rob!
