By Jorge Duany
Jorge Duany makes use of formerly untapped basic resources to carry new insights to questions of Puerto Rican identification, nationalism, and migration. Drawing a contrast among political and cultural nationalism, Duany argues that the Puerto Rican "nation" has to be understood as a brand new type of translocal entity with deep cultural continuities. He files a powerful sharing of tradition among island and mainland, with diasporic groups tightly associated with island existence via a gentle round migration. Duany explores the Puerto Rican experience of nationhood by way of cultural representations produced via Puerto Ricans and contemplating how others--American anthropologists, photographers, and museum curators, for example--have represented the kingdom. His assets of data comprise ethnographic fieldwork, archival study, interviews, surveys, censuses, newspaper articles, own records, and literary texts.
