Yarimar Bonilla

Associate Professor of Anthropology and Latino & Caribbean Studies, Rutgers University

Bonilla will explore the Puerto Rican statehood movement in the context of the territory’s current fiscal, economic, and social crisis. Using ethnographic, archival, and survey research, she will examine how Puerto Ricans on both the island and the mainland construct an identity as U.S. nationals. She will also study how they leverage that identity politically, and how they imagine their political future as U.S. citizens
