Ricardo Gabriel is a scholar-organizer and a PhD candidate in sociology at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York (CUNY). His research interests include social movements, climate justice, and decolonial theory/praxis. Ricardo’s dissertation is a multimethod exploration of the movement for Puerto Rican studies at The City University of New York, from 1969 to the mid-1970s. It furthers our understanding of decolonial education by analyzing how students and scholars challenged colonial discourses in academia and advanced emancipatory knowledge and practices. Ricardo has written for NACLA: Report on the Americas, and in 2019 he wrote the forward for Caribbean Connections: Puerto Rico, 3 rd Edition, an interdisciplinary curricular guide with readings and lessons on Puerto Rico and social justice for high school teachers, published by Teaching For Change.
