 Special Issue of CENTRO Journal
Counterstreaming: Assessing the Impact of Cultural Remittances in Puerto Rico

Guest Editors: Carlos Garrido Castellano (Universidade de Lisboa) and Laura Bravo López (Universidad de Puerto Rico, Río Piedras)

This special issue of CENTRO Journal approaches counterstreaming in the Puerto Rican context in order to analyze how mobility and cultural remittances are redefining a shared cultural terrain. Under the term “counterstream,” coined by Juan Flores in 2009, we intend
to allude the set of cultural practices linked to the knowledge, experiences and attitudes that Puerto Ricans living in the mainland U.S. have introduced in the island
