Shiller, Jessica – Berkeley Review of Education, 2019

From April 2010 to March 2011, the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) underwent a two-phase strike sequence against neoliberal austerity measures. Altogether, that process resulted in the eventual concession of all of the students' main demands, an unprecedented feat at the UPR, and a rare one in Puerto Rican history in general. In this dissertation…
