Alumni

Bryan G looking into the camera

Bryan Guichardo (MMUF, ANTH/BS), PhD Student in History at the CUNY Graduate Center

His research interests are broadly centered around the histories of U.S capitalism, Caribbean migrations, and Nation-building in the late 19th-century and 20th century Caribbean. His current research is a historical study of the evolving subjectivities of Dominicans of West Indian descent, known colloquially as Cocolos, from their initial migration to the island to pre-Trujillo. He interested in examining how U.S imperialist projects, along with the projects of sugar capitalists, influence the Dominican state political and racial projects; how the growth of the modern sugar economy transformed the lives of those most vulnerable; and how these West Indian migrants transformed and became part of the social fabric of the island.

 

Bryan Guichardo, graduated from the City College of New York as part of the class of 2019. He was a dual major in Black Studies and Anthropology and a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship recipient. He is the 2019 recipient of Black Studies' highest honor, the William Hallett Green award, which is granted to a graduating senior with the highest grade point average and was named the 2019 class Salutatorian by the Colin Powel School for Civic and Global Leadership.
