Keara Goin's research interests focus on the role of media in identity negotiation among Afro-Latina/os, media-based racialization of Afro-Latina/os, and the performativity and intersections of race and gender. She has conducted fieldwork in the Dominican Republic and New York City as part of a continuing ethnographic study on Dominican identity. Currently working on her first book project, Mediated Dominicanidad (Indiana U Press), her most recent publications can be found in Latino Studies and Celebrity Studies. Goin earned her PhD from the Department of Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas at Austin and received her MA in Anthropology from the University of South Carolina.
