• Documenting the Narratives of Puerto Rican Migration, 1945-1980

PRAC Director Aldo Lauria Santiago and Professor Ismael Garcia Colon (College of Staten Island & Graduate Center, CUNY) have been awarded a small grant for the organizing and digitizing documents related to migration at the Archivo General de Puerto Rico. The funding received from the US Latino Digital Humanities Center of Arte Publico Press will support 18-20 weeks of work recovering the stories and documentation of Puerto Rican emigration held at the AGPR.  With the support of AGPR Director Hilda Ayala and senior archivist Pedro Roig, the work will produce a publicly accessible digital archive that will be reproduced in three repositories and various guides and aides to the materials.  It will also help with the ongoing PRAC work of helping the AGPR identify and minimally catalog collections for public use.
