Dr. Daina Nathaniel is an assistant professor in the School of Communication. A native of Trinidad and Tobago, her research interests center around Caribbean issues, particularly with respect to culture, identity and nationhood.
Her primary research area is cultural studies which looks at the relationships between cultures within societies, issues of power and domination, the postcolonial experience, issues of race and ethnicity between disparate groups, and all the attendant challenges that arise as people try to find a sense of place within their various environments: home, school, work, church, community and nation.
She has taught 17 different courses including Intercultural Communication, Communication Research Methods and Persuasion. Currently she is working on coordinating the new Capstone Experience for graduating seniors that will provide students with the opportunity to showcase what they have learned in the School of Communication, as well as to give back to the community through service.
She is a graduate of Queens and is passionate about what this university has to offer its students in the areas of global thinking and civic engagement within a progessive academic environment.
