About this Event
Join the Africana Research Cluster for a virtual talk with Prof. Hilda Lloréns about her award-winning book Making Livable Worlds: Afro-Puerto Rican Women Building Environmental Justice (2021). Prof. Lloréns examines how Afro-Puerto Rican women draw from transgenerational cultural and ecological knowledge to engage in life-affirming practices to sustain their communities in spite of the compounding calamities of colonial-capitalist dispossession and environmental destruction in the archipelago. Please register here to attend.
Making Livable Worlds received the Society for Cultural Anthropology’s 2022 Gregory Bateson Book Prize and the Puerto Rican Studies Association’s 2022 Frank Bonilla Book Award.
