Alissa Trotz is an Associate Professor in Women and Gender Studies, and Director of the undergraduate Caribbean Studies Program at New College.

Her research interests draw on the Caribbean and its diasporas as a point of departure for exploring the wider resonance of questions that emerge from the incredibly complex site of colonial encounter that comprises this region.

She also edits a weekly column, In the Diaspora, in a Guyanese daily The Stabroek News.
