One-Hundred Years of Puerto Rican Studies

The digitization of 24 cubic feet of archival materials documenting the arts, culture, social movements, and history of the Puerto Rican diaspora, primarily in New York City.

Centro is proposing to digitize some 23,500 pages (24 cubic feet) from 17 archival collections to create 6.600 new digital objects depicting One-Hundred Years of Puerto Rican History & Culture. This project will provide access to specialists and the general public to underutilized humanities-focused archival collections. It will unveil primary source material and enhance the ability of researchers and the general public to explore and discover unique documents highlighting the Puerto Rican community's creativity in several of the humanities disciplines: arts, literature and history. Using current metadata standards and an established content management system, the project will also highlight other disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to contextualize different forms of Puerto Rican creative arts and cultural expressions, and provides a better understanding of how migration, social and political movements, race, gender, class, sexuality, and religion shape cultural creations.
