FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions):

How can I participate in Bridging the Divides Decolonization Study Group?

There are two ways to participate. You can sign up to be a part of the broad group, who will collaborate with the seed group on benchmark publications, media products and artistic projects.

If you are a scholar, journalist, artist, or cultural worker, you can apply to be a seed group fellow. This group will develop benchmark publications, media products, and artistic projects that can help bridge our divides, create bridges of understanding, and forge new theoretical foundations, policy recommendations, and conceptual and material pathways to reimagine Puerto Rico.

Where will study group activities take place?

Study group activities will be virtual, with some in person events taking place.

The seed group will participate in two in-person retreats, one in Puerto Rico and one in New York.

How long will the study group be active?

We are planning for the study group to run from June 2022 through May 2023.

How much time am I expected to commit to working with the broad group?

You are not required to work on this project on a weekly basis, we only ask that you are willing to participate in events and group activities and that you’re open to collaboration and the exchange of ideas.

How much time am I expected to commit to working with the seed group?

Members of the seed group will be expected to dedicate 10 hours a week to this project and to attend bi-weekly virtual meetings. You will also be expected to participate in the two in person retreats.
