March is Women’s History Month and we’re starting off right on Wednesday, March 9th, 2022 at 4 PM EST with a Cafecito con Dr. María Teresa Vera-Rojas! In this very special Cafecito, Centro Researcher Dr. Celiany Rivera Velázquez and Dr. Vera-Rojas will explore María’s book “Se conoce que usted es ‘Moderna’” where she not only focuses on the work and debates of Puerto Rican writers and feminists Clotilde Betances Jaeger, María Mas Pozo, and Josefina Silva de Cintrón but also explore, among other things, the meaning of modernity and modern women created and projected by publications such as Gráfico, La Prensa and Artes y Letras. After the conversation, Celiany and María will open the floor to the audience for a Q&A.
