About Danielle Blalock Barefoot

I am a PhD candidate with an emphasis in Latin America and minors in the fields of global/comparative history and higher education. My dissertation research examines Chilean student networks, politics, and mobilization from 1964 through 1990.

I was awarded a Fulbright research grant for the 2017-18 cycle and will spend nine months (March-November 2018) in Chile completing my dissertation research and working as a researcher on the Juventudes project led by Professor Óscar Aguilera. To keep up with my research and Fulbright journey, follow my blog and my Twitter (@chileanista).
