Chelsey is a cultural anthropologist who holds a BA in Anthropology from North Carolina State University and an M.A. in Cultural Anthropology from George Mason University. Chelsey’s master’s thesis focused on the impact of United States economic and military policies on the ongoing conflict in Colombia. Drawing from and expanding on this research, her current dissertation research examines US-Latin American solidarity movements over the past 40 years asking how people involved in episodes of US Latin American Solidarity have become politically aware and how this political consciousness has influenced how people imagine and enact resistance.
