Bradley Cardozo

Postdoctoral Fellow (2022-2023)

Bradley Cardozo is a cultural anthropologist with interests in environmental justice movements, climate change policies, and feminist, queer, and postcolonial ecologies. He is the Postdoctoral Fellow at the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice. He joins the Rapoport Center from the Department of Anthropology at UCLA. His doctoral research, funded by the National Science Foundation and the Fulbright-Hayes Program, examined the climate justice movement in the Philippines. As a researcher at the UCLA-based LABYRINTH Project, he worked with “wetlands protectors” to end all oil drilling in, and to restore Indigenous (Tongva and Acjachemen) sovereignty over, the Puvungna Wetlands of Southern California. At the Rapoport Center, he will help oversee the Center’s project on inequality and the future of work by examining how the climate crisis necessitates a transition to a fossil fuel-free world, and how this adjustment to all-encompassing renewable energy infrastructures compels us to rethink work as we know it.
