Albert Manke, PhD, is a researcher in the project “The Americas as Space of Entanglement” at Bielefeld University. He specializes in Latin American History in a both inter-American and global perspective. His dissertation analyzed the social history of popular mobilization during the Cuban revolution in the light of U.S. hegemonic interests. As a co-director of the University of Cologne Forum “Ethnicity as a Political Resource”, his focus shifted to transpacific and transatlantic entanglements of the Americas. From 2017 to 2018, he was the first fellow in the History of Migration at the newly founded GHI West at UC Berkeley, together with his tandem fellow partner, Dr. Lok Siu. Albert Manke’s current research project focuses on the transnational and translocal interactions of Asian migrant communities in the Americas.
