Meet 2020 DFP Spring Fellow, Alexia Alkadi-Barbaro; 2021 Applications Open – Deadline March 19

Alexia Alkadi-Barbaro is a second-year Political Theory PhD student in the Department of Government at Cornell University. Currently, Alexia’s scholarly work focuses broadly on the construction of notions of justice, equality, and beauty in mid-20th century anticolonial political thought, and how these concepts were shaped by and spoke to the emerging ecological and food crises of the Global South. To this extent, her research draws on a range of scholarly backgrounds in the humanities and social sciences including Indigenous Studies, Africana Students and the emerging field of the Environmental Humanities to consider how visions of anticolonial sovereignty amongst farmers, politicians and activists within the Middle East and North Africa as well as Sub-Saharan Africa were premised on sustainable ecological and agricultural practices in the mid 20th century. Outside of her research, Alexia is involved with building the Cornell University Freedom School and is an active advocate for equal access to education amongst low-income and minority students.
