ABSTRACT
This article reports on findings from the 2008-2009 oral history project, "Puerto Ricans in Central Florida 1940s to 1980s: A History." To set a course for research on cultural identification in Central Florida, the article maps out the historic trajectories that have brought Puerto Ricans to Central Florida and historicizes the development of Puerto Rican spaces in Central Florida. Puerto Ricans in Central Florida have moved from these different trajectories into a geographic space marked by historic emphases on self-reliance and free enterprise, an area where "development" and "neoliberalism" have meant the same thing. Pulling together these diverse threads, both geographic and historical, this article proposes further research to be done to address the question of how Puerto Rican experience is redrawing Central Florida, and how Central Florida is redrawing Puerto Rican experience.
