Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology and Black studies, Swarthmore College

My name is Dr. Edlin Veras. I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology and Black studies at Swarthmore College where I conduct research on and teach about anti-Blackness, and migration in the US and Caribbean. I earned my PhD in Sociology with a specialization in Latin American and Caribbean Studies from the University of South Florida in 2021. My work has been supported by the American Sociological Association Minority Fellowship Program. I have been actively engaged in research on Haitian migrants and their descendants in the Dominican Republic since 2017. I have been published in the Sociology of Race and Ethnicity, and am currently finishing my book manuscript on Haitian Migrant Laborers in Dominican Republic’s northern coast.
