Reading with Rima Brusi: Dismantling Public Education in Puerto Rico In Aftershocks of Disaster: Puerto Rico Before and After the Storm
The concept of aftershocks is used in the context of earthquakes to describe the jolts felt after the initial quake - but no disaster is a singular event.
Aftershocks of Disaster examines the lasting effects of Hurricane Maria - not just the effects of the wind or the rain - but delving into what followed: state failure, social abandonment, capitalization on human misery, and the collective trauma produced by the botched response.
Rima Brusi is a Distinguished Lecturer in the Anthropology Department.
