CALL FOR PAPERS

Beyond Corruption: From Colonial Practices to Emancipatory
Futures in Puerto Rico

 

GUEST EDITORS

Jose Atiles (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Gustavo García (Center for Social Studies-
Portugal and University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras), Joaquín Villanueva (Gustavus Adolphus College)

Corruption continues to shape Puerto Rico’s contemporary history and is arguably a central element of today’s global capitalism.

This call for papers seeks manuscripts that critically evaluate corruption and associated struggles in Puerto Rico.
