Assistant Professor of International Relations in the Politics and History Department, Dr. Grant Burrier completed his Ph.D. at the University of New Mexico, writing his dissertation on infrastructure investments and sustainable development in Brazil. A recipient of several fellowships and research grants, he has made numerous conference presentations and has written extensively on Latin American politics, political economy, and environmental policy. While at the University of New Mexico, Dr. Burrier initiated two study abroad programs taking students to Brazil and Cuba. Currently, he is planning a study abroad program that takes students to Uruguay and Argentina. The month-long summer program explores issues of sustainability and considers the important contributions of gauchos (the cowboys of the Pampas) in building Uruguayan and Argentine national identities. Over the years, he has taught Comparative Politics, International Relations, several courses on Cuban, Mexican, and Brazilian Politics, and multiple levels of Spanish language courses.
