New Directions in Puerto Rican Studies

Our LALS professor, Dr. José Laguarta Ramírez, presented “Rethinking Puerto Rican Studies in a Moment of Danger” at a recent one-day symposium at the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College. Professor Laguarta examines and contextualizes Puerto Rican History in Puerto Rican Studies at CUNY, and considers the field in terms of interdisciplinary studies, intersectionality, and critical race studies, among other issues.
