Cafecito con… Marisel Moreno: Crossing Waters

May 22, 2024 3:00 pm to May 22, 2024 4:00 pm

ONLINE, Bronx, New York

Free

Join Marisel Moreno, award-winning author of the book Crossing Waters: Undocumented Migration in Hispanophone Caribbean and Latinx Literature & Art, and Dr. Yomaira Figueroa-Vásquez, CENTRO Directora, for a cafecito as they reconsider the traditional understanding of borders, migration and Puerto Rico’s unique position in the migration narrative.

Debates over the undocumented migration of Latin Americans invariably focus on the southern US border, but most migrants never cross that arbitrary line. Instead, many travel, via water, among the Caribbean islands. The first study to examine literary and artistic representations of undocumented migration within the Hispanophone Caribbean, Crossing Waters relates a journey that remains silenced and largely unknown.

Crossing Waters, which has received the 2023 Honorable Mention, Isis Duarte Book Prize in the Haiti/Dominican Republic section (LASA), and the prestigious 2023 Gordon K. and Sybil Lewis Book Award from the Caribbean Studies Association, can be purchased from the University of Texas Press here: https://utpress.utexas.edu/9781477325605/
