José Fusté publishes “Repeating Islands of Debt"


IAS faculty member José Fusté published “Repeating Islands of Debt: Historicizing the Transcolonial Relationality of Puerto Rico's Economic Crisis.” The article appears in the latest issue of the Radical History Review. In it, Fusté models a relational historical reading of the colonial formations that have bound Puerto Ricans to other colonial subjects throughout the US empire. It invites a less nation-centric and more wide-ranging analysis of the factors that have led to Puerto Rico’s current debt debacle.
