Beyond Traditional: Contemporary Understandings of Puerto Rico
(Course lecture series organized by Professor Amanda Guzmán)
The course, Beyond Traditional: Contemporary Understandings of Puerto Rico, interrogates Puerto Rican culture on its own terms – shifting from traditional definitions of the island’s identity formation from multiple cultural influences to contemporary critiques centering historically marginalized communities amidst ongoing climate and economic precarity. For an island defined by a liminality of political status and a historically contingent stateside diaspora, how do we re-conceptualize the traditional as well as embrace the contemporary? This speaker series explores and archives a selection of thought around and analysis of material and immaterial cultural productions originating from island and stateside diaspora communities. Speakers represent a range of diverse positionalities from archaeologists and art historians to museum curators and educators. These talks which originated in a remote Trinity classroom in Spring 2021 invite the future viewers of this channel – Hartford community members and beyond – to join a conversation as we consider new, critical understandings of the island’s cultural legacy and more importantly – its future.
