    Marilisa Jiménez García: “Side by Side: US Empire, Puerto Rico, and the Roots of American Youth Literature and Culture”

    None

     

    In Side by Side: US Empire, Puerto Rico, and the Roots of American Youth Literature and Culture, author Marilisa Jiménez García focuses on the contributions of the Puerto Rican community to American youth, approaching Latinx literature as a transnational space that provides a critical lens for examining the lingering consequences of US and Spanish colonialism for US communities of color.

    Through analysis of texts typically outside traditional Latinx or literary studies such as young adult literature, textbooks, television programming, comics, music, curriculum, and youth movements, Side by Side represents the only comprehensive study of the contributions of Puerto Ricans to American youth literature and culture, as well as the only comprehensive study into the role of youth literature and culture in Puerto Rican literature and thought.

    Considering recent debates over diversity in children’s and young adult literature and media and the strained relationship between Puerto Rico and the US, Jiménez García's timely work encourages us to question who constitutes the expert and to resist the homogenization of Latinxs, as well as other marginalized communities, that has led to the erasure of writers, scholars, and artists.

    webinar-march-2020.png
     
    La Oficina de Gerencia y Presupuesto de los Estados Unidos (OMB) acaba de flexibilizar a corto plazo ciertos requisitos administrativos, financieros, gerenciales y de auditoría a solicitantes y recipientes de fondos federales.   Son aplicables a organizaciones sin fines de lucro y agencias que ofrecen servicios de investigación y servicios necesarios para atender el COVID-19; y aquellas afectadas por la pérdida de capacidad operacional y aumento de costos durante la crisis. Abordaremos en el webinar los diversos requisitos flexibilizados.
    Además, a tono con la Declaración de Emergencia en los Estados Unidos, FEMA ha hecho disponible a organizaciones y agencias apoyo para actividades elegibles bajo la Categoría B de su Programa de Asistencia Pública.  Las organizaciones sin fines de lucro pueden ser elegibles para reembolsos de servicios y medidas de protección de emergencia vinculables a la crisis del COVID-19.  El webinar abordará los variados servicios aplicables, cómo solicitar elegibilidad a FEMA (antes del 15 de abril), y la necesaria coordinación de estos servicios con los planes y estrategias de respuesta del Gobierno de Puerto Rico y sus agencias de salud.
