Melissa Rosario is a cultural anthropologist who specializes in protest politics of the Amercas.  She is really fascinated by the daily practices associated with living one's politics, and the rythm of social change.  Her work contributes to debates on affect, embodiment and to the practice of decolonization today.  She's most interested in what the concept of revolution might mean in Puerto Rico, a case which inspired the expansion of US into a formal empire, remaining within its purview for centuries. 

She teaches on social movements, race/gender/sexuality, globalization and borderlands theory.M Rosario
