Lo Terciario / The Tertiary / Philly Book Release

Readers:
Kirwyn Sutherland
Raena Shirali
Ashley Davis

Frank Sherlock
Sanam Sheriff
Gabriel Ojeda-Sague

Written in response the PROMESA bill (Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act) bill,
Raquel Salas Rivera’s
LO TERCIARIO/THE TERTIARY
offers a decolonial queer critique and reconsideration of Marx. The book’s titles come from Pedro Scaron’s, El Capital, the 1976 translation of Karl Marx’s classic. 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.
