Study of the Development of the Puerto Rican Cultural Identity.
Echevarria-Hernandez, Aurea
This dissertation presents a phenomenological analysis of the concept of Puerto Rican cultural identity. The body of the thesis is in Spanish, but it includes an appended summary in English. In chapter one, the concept of identity, self-evaluation and culture are analyzed. Chapter two studies the ethno-historical perspective of the Puerto Rican culture focusing on the four hundred years of Hispanic colonization. In chapter three, the influence of the Anglo-American culture in Puerto Rico with particular emphasis on its pedagogical approach are studied. Also studied are the outcomes of fifty years of bilingual education. Chapter four studies the Puerto Rican literature as social diagnosis and rescuer of the Puerto Rican cultural identity blueprint. Chapter five concludes the dissertation and presents an evaluation of the concept of Puerto Rican cultural identity. (Author/AM)
