Chelsey Dyer

Graduate Student

Chelsey holds a BA in Anthropology from North Carolina State University and an MA in Cultural Anthropology from George Mason University. Her research interests include cultural memory, violence, development, and the socio-economic impacts of US exported militarization. While pursuing her doctorate she hopes to begin to unpack the enigma of global militarization by examining how senses of duty, state, and nationalism develop in US soldiers throughout their military training and career and are subsequently passed to foreign troops trained by US forces, specifically the Colombian Army. She hopes to understand how US and Colombian soldiers are further militarized or demilitarized while in the military, and how these new conceptions congruently impact Colombian civilians.
