Afro-Puerto Rican Testimonies update!

We are happy to announce the recent publication of our article “Testimonios Afropuertorriqueños: Using Oral Testimonies to (Re)Write Race in Contemporary Puerto Rico” in the latest issue of Sargasso, a peer-reviewed journal of literature, language, and culture edited at the University of Puerto Rico-Río Piedras. The essay is co-authored by English Department faculty member Jocelyn A. Géliga Vargas, MAEE candidate Irmaris Rosas Nazario and community collaborator Tania Delgado Hernández. This issue of Sargasso (2007-2008, I) is dedicated to the examination of “alternative identities” as these are represented in contemporary Caribbean literature, art and oral testimonies.
