Dr. Davila is a professor of Anthropology and American studies at New York University whose research spans urban ethnography, the political economy of culture and media, consumption, immigration, and geographies of inequality and race.

Dr. Gabara is an associate professor of romance studies at Duke who works with art, literature, and visual culture from modern and contemporary Latin America. Central issues in her research are the relationship between ethics and aesthetics, theories and practices of non-mainstream modernisms, and representations of race and gender.

Dr. Rivera-Rideau is an assistant professor of American studies at Wellesley College. Her first book, Remixing Reggaeton: The Cultural Politics of Race in Puerto Rico, focused on how the rap-reggae musical hybrid reggaeton offers new ways of thinking about Puerto Rico's relationship to the broader African diaspora.
