In survival and in grief, with resilience and creativity, residents of Puerto Rico and other islands continue to live through the extreme, forced reversion from the digital world to analog life. After catastrophic failures of basic infrastructure, wrenching decisions and practical strategies have introduced radical approaches to the far-reaching consequences of colonialism, the implications of climate change, and the effects of continuing political neglect. Join us as panelists from across the Clark community share stories of unimaginable transformations in Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and other places forever altered by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Professor Maria Acosta Cruz (Language, Literature and Culture) will lead this interactive forum.
