Gabriel Salgado is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science. His teaching and research focus on race, colonialism, and temporality in Latin America. In his current project, he examines the development of race in the early modern Spanish Empire with an emphasis on the racialization of Jewish, Black, and Indigenous peoples.

Salgado’s teaching interests broadly span the fields of political theory and Latin American studies. His courses aim to have students explore how political theory can serve as both a tool for making sense of the world and for envisioning other ways of being and relating to one another. As a member of the Hic Rosa Collective, he has helped organize sessions of the Falsework School and the Summer Studios in Materialist & Decolonial (MAD) Politics & Aesthetics.
