Cosmopolitan Puerto Rico: The Influences of Corsicans in Puerto Rican Identity and of Puerto Rican Women in Search of the American Dream

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Royal Decree of Graces of 1815 allowed for the mass migration of foreigners to Puerto Rico. In less than a generation, German, British, Irish, Russian, Polish, Italian, French and Corsican immigrants transformed Puerto Rico into a multilingual and cosmopolitan island. In this presentation I seek to expand the spectrum of Puerto Rican identity through a focus on the role of nineteenth century immigration in the creation of an unprecedented cosmopolitan and multilingual Puerto Rico. Furthermore, I document some of the Corsican-Puerto Rican families and the role of Puerto Rican women in the achievement of the American Dream. This presentation explores the innovative relationship between cultural history, immigration, and architecture.
