This chapter focuses on the debates regarding Puerto Rico's history and identity from the 1960s to the 1980s. It looks at the emergence of a new group of historians, social scientists, and artists who sought to renew literary and artistic expressions and discourse, among other concerns. The chapter also highlights the participation of women in this new literary wave, along with the emergence of Nuyorican poets and historians who now challenged island-centered representations of migrants as demoralized cultural hybrids and tackled class, race, and gender issues head on. Finally, it examines the emergence of a group of young authors who challenged old notions of Puerto Rican literature and criticism.

Keywords:   Puerto Rico's history, Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico's identity, historians, women, Nuyorican poets, class, race, gender, Puerto Rican literature
