Revolutionary Visions: Ramón Emeterio Betances and the Specters of 19th Century Peurto Rican Patriotism

February 27, 2015 - 3:00pm

This lecture by Postdoctoral Fellow, NeKahlil Chaar-Pérez will discuss elite articulations of 19th century Peurto Rican patriotism and their afterlives through the singular case of Ramón Emerterio Betances, the so-called "father of the nation." It will examine how Betance's romantic visions of revolution and political community in the Caribbean offer an alternate pathway to nationalist traditions of politics and aesthetics.
