Alejandro was born in Savannah La Mar, Jamaica and raised on Long Island, NY. He received his B.A. in Africana Studies and Educational Studies from Vassar College. He is currently a Masters student in IRAAS. His current research interests engage the formation of trans-Atlantic intimacies in the context of the 18th century Caribbean. Especially looking at the impact of British metropolitan discourses on Jamaican plantation society and vice versa. In his work, he hopes to engage new ways of reading the Archive to retrace the stories and impacts of liminal peoples on the Atlantic cultural geography. After completing his time with IRAAS he plans to go on to pursue a doctoral degree in a related field of research.
