Monika Gosin is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Director of the Latin American Studies Program at the College of William & Mary. Her research and teaching focus includes (Afro) Latinx and Africana studies, race and gender in popular culture and media, and intergroup relations. She is the author of The Racial Politics of Division: Interethnic Struggles for Legitimacy in Multicultural Miami (Cornell University Press, 2019), which situates Afro-Cuban immigrants within a historical analysis of tense relations between African Americans and (white) Cuban Americans in Miami. The book also examines how Afro-Latinx positionality intervenes in African American-Latinx conflict more broadly. Her further work on Afro-Cuban immigrants and Afrolatinidades has been published in edited volumes such as Afro-Latinos in Movement: Critical Approaches to Blackness and Transnationalism in the Americas (Palgrave, 2016), and Latinx Belonging: Community Building and Resilience in the United States (University of Arizona Press, 2022); as well as in journals such as Latino Studies and Anthurium: A Caribbean Studies Journal.
