Brukab Sisay

Doctoral Student

Brukab graduated cum laude from the University of Washington with a B.A. degree in American Ethnic Studies. His major research interests focus on the intersections of historical and contemporary racial formations, identity constructions, and mobilization movements of diasporic black migrants. In specific, he is interested in how immigrant and native-born blacks of Abesha (Ethiopian and Eritrean) descent in the United States transform ideas and practices of blackness, interact and navigate across relationships of difference and power, and mobilize within and through transnational contexts in sites such as schools, community centers, and political organizations.
