Cultural Anthropology Program
Kelsey Chatlosh (she/her) is a doctoral student in the Cultural Anthropology program. Her future dissertation research, supported by a Fulbright IIE research grant, will investigate women-led Afro-Chilean activism in northern Chile for recognition, territory, and public history; and how activists are contesting dominant narratives of race and nation, re-envisioning futures, and linking with other activist networks. Her work as a Digital Fellow is focused on digital tools and platforms for qualitative research and oral interviews, with an emphasis on ethics and feminist methods. Prior to the CUNY Graduate Center, Kelsey worked as the Language Access Monitor at the Washington, DC Mayor’s Office on Latino Affairs. There, among other projects, she co-founded the website LanguageIsARight.org and worked on a public art and social media campaign to spread awareness of city residents’ right to access city programs and services in their own languages.
