Nicole Ramsey completed her Ph.D. in the department of African American & African Diaspora Studies at the University of California Berkeley. Originally from Los Angeles, California, she holds an MA in African American Studies from UCLA and a BA in American Studies from UC Santa Cruz. Nicole’s interdisciplinary approaches to blackness, indigeneity, migration and popular culture are grounded in a diasporic and transnational framework. Her dissertation, "Sub Umbra Floreo (Under the Shade I Flourish): Performing the Belizean Nation," explores performances of nation, blackness, and cultural production in Belize and its diaspora.
