Summary:
Debates on self-determination and sovereignty for the peoples of Puerto Rico have been framed by formulae developed during the Spanish colonial period to support claims for full integration into the kingdom, limited autonomy, and independence. Early during the US colonial regime these positions were hastily translated and have since fossilized along the lines of what has come to be known as the “Status Issue”.

When the Argentine Roberto Fontanarrosa passed away in 2007, a national day of mourning was declared and his funeral was attended by thousands. Although Fontanarrosa was much loved and both the man and his works have received public recognition time and again, there are very few published academic works on his œuvre to this day. This proposed anthology seeks to fill this gap by paying attention to Fontanarrosa’s work as a whole.
