Speakers will share ideas on the social and political aftermath of Hurricane María, how Puerto Ricans have come to deal with their political history under U.S. colonial rule, and how social movements in Puerto Rico imagine and enact an anti-colonial future.
This event is organized and sponsored by UMBC’s Latinx and Hispanic Faculty Association, the Dresher Center for the Humanities, and the School of Public Policy with media support from by the Puerto Rico Syllabus project led by Dr. Yarimar Bonilla.
