Christina Proenza-Coles examines questions surrounding race and ethnicity with an interdisciplinary, comparative, transnational, and transhistorical framework. She has taught courses whose topics range from the historical, with particular focus on the colonial Atlantic world, to the contemporary, including the sociology of culture and immigration. Her work endeavors to shed light on current dynamics of race and ethnicity in the United States within a larger world-historical context.
