Share Issues of Citizenship, Ideology, Race, and Class in the Spanish Speaking Caribbean: The 1812 Constitution of Cádiz

Event Details

The Spanish Constitution of Cádiz of 1812 is perceived as the earliest institutional manifestation of a desire to establish a liberal State in Spain because for the first time the power of the State was limited and some individual rights and social freedoms were granted to Spaniards.  What were the repercussions of the 1812 Spanish Constitution in the colonies of Cuba, Puerto Rico and Santo Domingo Español? What was the Constitution’s impact in the mentalities of the colonial societies; on the everyday life of the different racial groups; in the ideologies that ensued once these societies were no longer under the rule of Spain?

CUNY DOMINICAN STUDIES INSTITUTE

Founded in 1992 at The City College of New York, the Dominican Studies Institute of the City University of New York (CUNY DSI) is the nation’s first, university-based research institute devoted to the study of people of Dominican descent in the United States and other parts of the world. CUNY DSI’s mission is to produce and disseminate research and scholarship about Dominicans and about the Dominican Republic. The Institute houses the Dominican Archives and the Dominican Library, the first and only institutions in the United States collecting primary and secondary source material about Dominicans. In 2010, the Institute opened the doors of its Archives and Library facility to exhibitions of art by and about people of Dominican descent, becoming the first major institution in New York City to devote its exhibition space exclusively to such artwork.
