Description:

CRISIS AND NEOLIBERAL CULTURE IN PUERTO RICO: THE CASE OF HAMILTON

PRESENTED BY, ZORIMAR RIVERA MONTES, Department of Spanish and Portuguese

This presentation will examine the politics of the acclaimed musical Hamilton: An American Musical and its relationship (as well as that of its creator Lin-Manuel Miranda) to Puerto Rico and its debt crisis. Hamilton might be the most celebrated musical of our times, yet little has been said about the show's ties to the Caribbean, especially Puerto Rico. My presentation considers the role of Puerto Rico not just in the musical itself, but in its public reception and the imaginaries it activates, especially in relationship to the ongoing Puerto Rican crises.
En Diálogo is a space where graduate students whose work engages and is
conversation with Latinx Studies will workshop, collectively think through, and
discuss their research with other students and faculty.
