Colonial Rights & Migration: Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines in the 19th Century

A lecture by Josep M. Fradera Barceló, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona

This presentation discussed how immigration made Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines—the three remaining Spanish colonies after the imperial breakdown of 1810-1824—conspicuously different societies and how this conditioned their reactions to the shifting political options offered by the Spanish liberal State at different moments from the first liberal Constitution of 1812 up to the end of Spanish sovereignty in 1898.

Josep Fradera Barceló is Professor of History at the Universitat Pomeu Fabra in Barcelona and an expert in the economic, political and cultural history of Catalonia and Spain during the 19th century and of Spanish colonialism in the Americas and the Philippines.

This event is sponsored by the Forum on Migration and Columbia’s Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race as part of the Migration, Race, and Ethnicity lecture series.
