I will use my experience with LatCrit authors and scholarship and the LatCrit Research Toolkit to place the two articles in this cluster in a LatCritical context.

Part I of this cluster introduction addresses how the articles contribute to an understanding of the intersection between race, culture, and colonialism within LatCrit scholarship. Part II addresses the authors' cross-disciplinary approach to their topic and how it fits within existing LatCrit scholarship. Part III discusses how the cluster articles reflect LatCrit's extensive discussion of colonialism, race, culture, and Puerto Rico. This will be followed by a few conclusions.
