Centro Voices 
 

Centro Voices is a new peer-reviewed, online magazine devoted to Puerto Rican studies. The Center for Puerto Rican Studies (Centro) and its partners conceive Centro Voices as a web-based outlet for the exchange of ideas and scholarship not regularly covered by traditional academic journals.

 

Centro Voices – on Centro’s website (www.centropr.org) – is a shared cybernetic space in which online resources are organized in sections corresponding to work groups (such as Yahoo group, Google group etc.). These groups create pages with assistance from Centro staff, can add content with ease, and may choose to sustain blogs and discussion lines. Each one of the groups is responsible for maintaining and updating their sections periodically. Centro is a research center dedicated to the study and interpretation of the Puerto Rican experience in the United States. We are committed to making this research available and useful to those in community organizations, public policy, and academia. Centro is the world's only repository of archival and library materials dedicated exclusively to the Puerto Rican Diaspora. We seek to contribute to the advancement of the field of Puerto Rican studies and all the academic and community institutions that comprise the field. Centro Voices is intricately related to Centro’s mission.
