African and African Diaspora Studies
Affiliated Graduate Students

Daisy Guzman is a Garifuna American graduate student who is passionate about her contribution to the field of Garifuna studies. Centering her analysis in African diasporic literature with special attention to Black feminist epistemology, her project, From La Buga to the South Bronx: Garifuna women embodied history and memory, emphasizes the complexities of Black women's migration experiences. Following the methodological practices of Zora Neale Hurston and Gloria Wekker, her positionality is a vital component of both her theoretical approach, ethnographic methods, and citational practices. Daisy courses in Latin American Literature, Black Studies, and Anthropology offer analytical templates to discuss and work through her ideas.
