Navigating Insecurity:

Crisis, Power, and Protest in Puerto Rican Communities

 

Puerto Rican Studies Association (PRSA) 13th Biennial Conference

Rutgers University

New Brunswick, New Jersey

October 26-28, 2018

WhileHurricane Maria and the economic crisis have thrown into sharp relief the forms of insecurity that many Puerto Ricans on the archipelago and in the diaspora live with, we ask how insecurity may be considered a persistent aspect of puertorriqueñidad. Colonial rule, military service, migration, natural disasters, low wages, unemployment and recurrent debt crises have generated immediate and lasting forms of insecurity for Puerto Ricans. This conference invites submissions that discuss how Puerto Ricans have experienced, negotiated, challenged, and/or prevailed over conditions of insecurity both historically and in the contemporary moment. Further, we encourage submissions that not only outline conditions of insecurity but also show how Puerto Ricans have persevered and thrived in these conditions building vibrant communities and forging solidarity with other marginalized groups. We especially want to encourage cultural producers and scholars of art and culture to engage with this year’s theme of navigating insecurity.

We encourage submissions from activists and social movement leaders to present narratives about the responses to Hurricane Maria.
