    Julia de Burgos and the FBI:
    From the latest CENTRO Journal

    In Between Dissidence and Good Neighbor Diplomacy: Reading Julia de Burgos with the FBI, Harris Feinsod (Assistant Professor, Department of English and Program of Comparative Literature, Northwestern University) takes a novel approach to literary criticism of de Burgos’ work. He reads her through the lens of her first Spanish-to-English translators, the FBI. The Bureau translators identified her work as dissident nationalism, and Professor Feinsod places her in the tradition of other dissident Western Hemisphere writers.

    One- Hundred Years of the Jones Act and Puerto Rican U.S. Citizenship

    ‪In anticipation of the centennial (1917-2017) of the enactment of the Jones Act, the Center for Puerto Rican Studies (CENTRO) will sponsor 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 goal of this symposium is to examine the complexities surrounding the collective naturalization of the inhabitants of an unincorporated territory.
