Jack is a first year Ph. D student in the program and his research interests focus broadly on recent Cuban immigration to the United States. More specifically he plans to study the identity differences between undocumented Cuban migrants who were smuggled through Mexico to reach the United States and documented Cuban migrants who obtained visas. Jack’s research also hopes to explore how United States and Cuban government relations and policies, globalization, and public discourse are affecting Cuban immigration.
Prior to joining the Global and Sociocultural Studies program, Jack studied at the University of Wyoming where he received a bachelor’s degree in History and a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology.
