Aftershocks of Disaster: Puerto Rico before and after the storm

por Yarimar Bonilla y Marisol LeBrón

In the context of earthquakes "aftershocks" describe the jolts felt after the initial quake. No disaster is a singular event. Aftershocks of Disaster examines the lasting effects of Huracaine María, not just of the wind of the rain, but what followed: state failure, social abandonment,capitalization on human misery, and the collective, and the collective trauma produced by the botched response.
