Carolina Hernandez

My background in labor and immigration activism has been formative to my research interests. I identify my research at the intersections of race and labor. I focus on labor movement approaches to race and other hierarchies, and the ways in which these approaches help shape the structure of movements. I am specifically interested in how anti-racist ideologies and interracial solidarities influence social movement unionism within the United States. More broadly, I am interested in researching transnational labor struggles organized by people of color.
