Gabriel Vergara is a Ph.D. student at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Within political science, Vergara focuses on political theory. Currently, Vergara is interested in pursuing topics in democratic theory—primarily on political education and the political party, respectively—and Marxist political thought. Through his scholarship, Vergara hopes to broadly engage with Latin American politics and Latin American political thought. For example, his past work examined Antonio Gramsci’s political thought to better understand political mobilization and the maintenance of group alliances; in order to elucidate his analysis, Vergara turned to Fidel Castro as a historical example. Prior to becoming a Ph.D. student, Vergara was a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow at Cornell University. He holds a B.A. in Government from Cornell University.
