Mixing the Popular and the Academic to Make Sense of the World
Author: Dr. Harry Franqui-Rivera
I'm a historian by training, an Associate Professor of History at Bloomfield College by day, and a public intellectual and blogger by night.
In my academic work I specialize in 19-20 century Puerto Rican, Caribbean, Latino, and Latin American History. In my work addresses issues of race, gender and identity within imperial-colonial relations, nation building projects, the creation of national identities, and the impact of military institutions in society, culture, and politics.
I have a forthcoming book, Fighting for the Nation: Military Service and Modern Puerto Rican National Identities, 1868-1952, University of Nebraska Press.
