Biography

George Barganier earned his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley where he subsequently held a University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Ethnic Studies. Dr. Barganier's research examines the dialectical interplay of criminality and internalized oppression, on the one hand, and radicalism and political resistance, on the other, in the formation of Black consciousness in the United States and around the globe. His most recent work, a comparative study of the political economy of street gangs in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and The Hague, Holland, examines the development of Black political consciousness amongst the Crips of the Netherlands and the Comando Vermelho of Brazil and the ways in which their articulations of Blackness both internalize and resist coloniality. Dr. Barganier is also currently completing a book manuscript which analyzes the psychosocial splintering impact of colonialism on Black consciousness and charts this bifurcation through an examination of the historical relationship between the Black Panther Party and the Crips and Bloods in Los Angeles.
