Josh Sainz, a UW graduate student

Josh Sainz hails from the sparsely populated town of Smoot, Wyoming. He obtained his BA in History with a Minor in Chicana Studies from the University of Wyoming. Previous to finishing his degree at UW, Josh attended Dickinson State University, Utah State University, and studied in Cardiff University, in Cardiff, Wales. His research interests have dealt with the Latin American Diaspora established in the British Isles, Puerto Rican Diaspora and Transnational communities within the United States, and the Latino experience in the rural Western U.S. As of now, he will focus on the rural Latino experience as the subject matter for his thesis. In his free time, Josh enjoys expanding his knowledge outside of the realm of Latin America and Southwestern U.S., traveling locally and globally, experimenting with cooking, and maintaining ample attention levels with his Welsh Corgi, Ralph.
