Since its first issue in 1987, the journal has proven to be one of Centro’s most important links to the public. A multidisciplinary, bilingual, refereed publication that welcomes scholarly articles in the humanities and the social and natural sciences, as well as interpretive essays, interviews, fiction, reviews and art. CENTRO Journal is published twice a year (spring and fall) and a yearly subscription includes both issues.
Consistent with the multidisciplinary spirit that characterizes the journal, this issue presents a hugely diverse array of articles that illuminate various aspects of the Puerto Rican experience.
