Assistant Professor of Sociology/Anthropology
Dan C. Castilow II is an anthropologist of the African diaspora whose work engages diasporic Blackness through the lenses of critical race theory and postcolonial studies. His current research project ethnographically explores ethnoracial identity formation in Trinidad and Tobago’s middle class, highlighting expressions of national and transnational Blackness through sites of leisure. Completing his doctoral training at Tulane University, Castilow was the recipient of the SREB Doctoral Fellowship and awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to complete his dissertation research in Trinidad. Originally from Houston, Texas, Castilow is a graduate of Morehouse College.
