Research Interests:
Linguistic anthropology, the politics of language use, social activism, language and cultural revitalization, racial and ethnic formations, religion; narrative, face-to-face interaction; Puerto Rico, Caribbean, Latin America, US

Research Summary:
My current research centers on Taíno cultural revitalization and identitarian movements in Puerto Rico. Specifically, I focus on the examination of face-to-face interactions, and the culturally situated communicative ideologies that influence and emerge from such movements. I also focus on how historical revisions affect the task of reconstruction (religious, linguistic, institutional, etc.) and indigenous ethnic identification.
