Excerpt from Boychiks and Boricua Theorists of Diaspora: Encounters with Jewishness in the works of Arturo Schomburg, Piri Thomas, and Aurora Levins Morales (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Excerpt from Boychiks and Boricua Theorists of Diaspora: Encounters with Jewishness in the works of Arturo Schomburg, Piri Thomas, and Aurora Levins Morales
Author: Michael Cucher
Abstract: I presented an excerpt from the introduction to my research project, Boychiks and Boricua Theorists of Diaspora: Encounters with Jewishness in the works of Arturo Schomburg, Piri Thomas, and Aurora Levins Morales. In this excerpt, I analyze representations of the "mister goldstein" characters in Pedro Pietri's famous poem, "Puerto Rican Obituary." I then introduce the Puerto Rican writers in the title of my project by examining their connections to Pietri's poem and its representations of its jewish supervisors. I also sketch out historical connections between Puerto Rican and Jewish diasporas going back to the Spanish Inquisition.
