Biographical Notes

Carlos Ulises Decena is an interdisciplinary scholar, whose work straddles the humanities and social sciences and whose intellectual projects engage and blur the boundaries among critical ethnic, queer and feminist studies and social justice. His first book, Tacit Subjects: Belonging and Same-Sex Desire among Dominican Immigrant Men, was published by Duke University Press in 2011. He is currently at work on two book-length projects: Body Portals: Embodiment in Early 21st Century Caribbean and Latinoamerican Artivism and Re-membered Country: Sexuality, Television, and Dominican Transnational Cultures. His work has appeared on the Journal of the National Medical Association, Social Text (a special issue titled “The Border Next Door which he coedited with Margaret Gray), Journal of Urban Health, Papeles de Población, AIDS Care and GLQ. He is also a co-editor of a Special Dossier on Latino Immigrants in New York State.

Since joining the Rutgers faculty in 2004, he has been teaching and mentoring students in two departments, Women's and Gender Studies and Latino and Hispanic Caribbean Studies. He has introduced a range of exciting new courses, such as Introduction to the Critical Study of Masculinities, The Color of AIDS: The Politics of Race during the AIDS Crisis, Dominican Transnational Cultures, Gender and Sexualities in the Caribbean, and Immigrant States: Jersey's Global Routes. 

WGS Statement on Academia and Free Speech Rights

It is inherent to the discipline of Women's Studies to deal with complex subjects through theoretical lenses, which question conventional knowledge production. This department, one of the most distinguished departments of WGS in the country, has a highly visible faculty of national and international reputation invited to speak in various fora on sometimes highly controversial subjects. Such faculty members, as scholars, have not only a right, but also an obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge within and beyond the academy. Moreover, as private citizens, our faculty continue to enjoy the same freedoms of speech and expression as any private citizen and in accordance with university policy the department supports their protection from institutional discipline in the exercise of these academic and free speech rights.
