Grad student Amaury Rodriguez co-edits Black Scholar special issue

CCNY graduate student Amaury Rodriguez has co-edited a special issue of The Black Scholar journal on the complexities of Black cultural politics in the Dominican Republic.

Amaury Rodriguez, a graduate student in the School of Education at The City College of New York, has co-edited a special issue of The Black Scholar journal on the complexities of Black cultural politics in the Dominican Republic.

The issue analyzes Dominican racial relations as well as provides an historical analysis of the racial legacies of the first American occupation of the Island. There are also articles on the empirical analysis of Dominicans’ contemporary racial language and identification and translations.

The Dominican-born Rodriguez, who is majoring in bilingual childhood education, was invited to co-edit the issue by Raj Chetty, an associate professor of English at St. John’s University.

“He needed a co-editor and we have many commonalities, so that made it easier to collaborate,” said Rodriguez, a former researcher in the City College-based CUNY Dominican Studies Institute.

He earned a BA in history from CCNY in 2011.
