Bryan Wilcox-Archuleta - 2015-2016 Minority Fellowship Program
Brian Wilcox-Archuleta

Bryan Wilcox-Archuleta is currently a graduate student in political science at the University of Washington in Seattle. Broadly defined, his research interests are in American politics, political behavior, and quantitative methods. More specifically, he is interested in the relationships between geographic context, group identity, and political participation among minority groups in the United States. His master’s thesis examines the impact of neighborhood and county racial and ethnic composition on politicized group identity among minority groups. In a doctoral program, he wants to develop a generalizable theory about the origins and evolution of politicized group identity for Latinos and Asian Americans. After completion of his doctorate, Bryan wants to teach at a research university. His research is supported by the University of Washington Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP) and Washington Institute for the Study of Ethnicity, Race, and Sexuality (WISER). He obtained his BA in political science and communication from the University of New Mexico.
