    Centro at the Smithsonian Next Week

    The Center for Puerto Rican Studies (CENTRO) in partnership with the Smithsonian Latino Center and the National Conference of Puerto Rican Women (NACOPRW) invites you to the conference “New Perspective on the Puerto Rican Migration”. The conference will take place on Thursday, September 3rd, 2015, at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. The conference will feature Dr. Edwin Meléndez, Director of The Center for Puerto Rican Studies and Dr. Emma Amador, Assistant Professor of History at Goucher College and former Centro Dissertation Fellow.

    Dr. Meléndez will engage in a discussion on the current trends of migration of Puerto Ricans to the United States, specifically, the demographic and socio-economic profile of the Puerto Ricans living stateside, based on the findings of the book “Puerto Ricans at the Dawn of the New Millennium”. Dr. Emma Amador will touch upon the experience of women in historic and contemporary Puerto Rican migrations, based on the findings of her research.

    The event will be live streamed, and ASL interpretation will be provided.

    Mark your calendars: Citizenship Symposium

    In anticipation of the centennial of the enactment of the 1917 Jones Act, the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (CENTRO) is holding a symposium examining the history and legacy of the collective naturalization of Puerto Ricans as United States citizens. The collective naturalization provision of the Jones Act not only departed from all prior precedents, but also established a new precedent for the extension of citizenship to annexed territories. The symposium will be held October 15-16, 2015 at Hunter College.

    More information and conference program will be posted in the upcoming weeks. Save the date!
