    Fall 2015 Issue of CENTRO Journal Released




    CENTRO: The Journal of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies is the leading peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated entirely to the field of Puerto Rican Studies. The Fall 2015 issue keeps with the journal's interdisciplinary and bilingual tradition by offering a diverse range of articles from some of the leading scholars in the field.

    The two lead articles in this edition, from Dr. Carlos Vargas-Ramos (Center for Puerto Rican Studies) and Dr. Edgardo Meléndez (CUNY-Hunter College), deal with the increasingly controversial question of Puerto Rican transnationalism. Vargas-Ramos offers a critical, data-based assessment of Puerto Rican migrants' transnational tendencies, while Meléndez continues his work of framing Puerto Rican migration in the context of the colonial state.
