International Scholar - From Guyana

Current Scholarly/Research Interests

Research Statement

Foundation of my research

My experiences growing up in racially divided Guyana in the 1960s and 1970s shaped my research for the Ph.D. at Binghamton University (SUNY) in New York and are influencing my scholarship today. My work is an intervention in the historical-theoretical debate on the role of slavery, colonialism and capital in the formation of race and ethnic relations and offers creative opportunities on new ways to understand ethnically imbued conflicts.
