Genesis Lara

I am a doctoral student in the History Department of University of California, Davis where my research and teaching interests include African Diaspora studies, Caribbean history and diaspora studies, and postcolonial and revolutionary studies. I am currently conducting research on the racial and social contours of the revolution of the Dominican Republic in the 1960s and its resultant impacts on the Caribbean and Latin America. My research has been supported by the Tinker Foundation, the University of California Consortium for Black Studies and the Dominican Studies Institute. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Florida.
