About Carlos Gomez

carlos gomez is a lecturer in the Ethnic Studies Department and a PhD Student in the Department of Gender Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. They hold a master’s degree in Ethnic Studies from the University of California, Riverside and a bachelor’s degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, where they double majored in Comparative Ethnic Studies and Sociology. Utilizing visual studies, performance, and aesthetics as points and methods of vantage, their research examines gender, sexuality, science, and technology as functions of racial settler colonialism in and beyond the United States. Their dissertation, tentatively titled “Aesthetics of Racial Gender: Settler Technoscience and Trans of Color Life,” theorizes how trans of color lifeways (which touch yet exceed trans persons of color), including cultural expression and aesthetic practice, are assembled within and against the transnational circuits of settler empire’s strategies of surveillance and medico-racial gendering.
