One of the aims of this new website is to document the history of the Puerto Rican Studies Association and, more broadly, of the field of Puerto Rican Studies.

If you were part of PRSA’s early leadership, or attended any of these conferences and have copies of documents or photos of the conferences and other PRSA events, please consider sharing those documents and photos with us. We can make arrangements to digitize them for possible inclusion on this website.

Just let us know by sending a message using the form found on the “Contact Us” page, which you can access by using the dynamic menu found near the top of this page.
