Gray F. Kidd,

Gray F. Kidd

I work on intellectuals, popular culture, and politics in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil. Supported by a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad fellowship, I am currently undertaking field research in the port city of Recife from October 2017 to 2018. 

From 2014 to 2016, I served as Graduate Student Coordinator of the Global Brazil Humanities Lab. I also served as a co-instructor and field coordinator for the Bass Connections Education and Human Development project "The Cost of Opportunity? Higher Education and Social Mobility in the Baixada Fluminense."
