2016 Fellows

Hometown: Pullman, WA

Travel Locations: Haiti, Trinidad, Venezuela, Brazil, Algeria, Morocco

Travel Objectives: Dylan will travel through current and former colonies in the Caribbean Sea, from Haiti to Trinidad, as well as the postcolonial nations of Venezuela, Brazil, Algeria, and Morocco. He seeks to bear witness to the contemporary legacy of European colonialism and to the associated environmental changes threatening these islands and coastal regions. He intends to explore these regions ecologically, economically, and socially, using scuba diving as a bridge between himself, the environment, and other people. He hopes his experiences across a range of communities and cultures will continue to prepare him to conduct responsible research that is more respectful of and responsive to the needs of communities it will impact.
