New Book: “Lo terciario/The Tertiary”


There will be a book launch for Raquel Salas Rivera’s new book, Lo terciario/The Tertiary, on Monday, May 7, 2018, at 7:00pm, at Tattooed Mom (530 South Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania).

Description: Written in response the PROMESA (Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act) bill, Lo terciario/The tertiary offers a decolonial queer critique and reconsideration of Karl Marx. The book’s title come from Pedro Scaron’s, El capital, the 1976 translation of Karl Marx’s classic Das Kapital. Published by Siglo Veintiuno Editores, this translation was commonly used by the Puerto Rican left as part of political formation programs. Lo terciario/The tertiary places this text in relation to the Puerto Rican debt crisis, forcing readers to reconsider old questions when facing colonialism’s newest horrors.
