Micah Wright received his B.A. in History and English from the University of Central Florida and his M.A. from Northeastern University. He is now a doctoral student at Texas A&M University with teaching and research interests in the twentieth-century militarization of the Caribbean and Latin America, particularly focused on the co-option of Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Panamanians into the American imperial project. His current research centers on Puerto Rican military service on the island, in Panama during WWI, and in the 1916-1924 intervention in the Dominican Republic. His primary focus is on the social consequences of U.S. militarization and the ways in which military service was viewed by different groups on the island.
