This course conducts an intensive fieldwork exercise and theological reflection of (1) the historical relationship between the United States and Puerto Rico with a view of the imperial/colonial context; (2) Puerto Rico’s multiple expressions of sovereignty in the areas of spirituality, ecology and community, and; (3) the re-emerging bonds after Hurricane Maria that inform diaspora solidarity in the post-colonial reality of disaster capitalism.

Prerequisite: CS 262.

Notes: Trip course to Loiza Aldea, Puerto Rico from May 22-30.
