Alissa Trotz is the Director  of the Women & Gender Studies Institute, 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.
