Marywood's Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Center (TRHT) and the Department of Social Sciences hosted a lecture on September 16, 2021 by Dr. Charles Venator-Santiago, Associate Professor at the University of Connecticut. His talk discussed the doctrine of territorial incorporation, the tradition of territorial expansionism that has enabled the U.S. to annex, govern and ascribe an unincorporated status to certain territories. He focused on this doctrine as it relates to Puerto Rico, examining how birth in Puerto Rico is tantamount to birth in the United States even though the Federal government continues to rule the Puerto Rican islands as a foreign locality for constitutional purposes.
