Greenleaf Conference Room
100A Jones Hall

The Center for Inter-American Policy and Research presents a lecture by Dr. Julian Go, Professor of Sociology at Boston University, titled “The Legacies of Colonialism: Pathways of (In)dependence in Puerto Rico and the Philippines.” The talk will compare and explore the different trajectories of Puerto Rico and the Philippines. They were both subject to U.S. and Spanish Colonialism, but they had different trajectories of elite-led revolutionary nationalism; today the Philippines is an independent nation-state while Puerto Rico is remains a colonial dependency.

This is a Brown Bag lecture – please feel free to bring your own lunch.
