Henrique Yagui Takahashi is a PhD Candidate in Latin American Cultural and Literary Studies. His areas of interest include Comparative Ethnic & Race Studies; Afro-Latin America and Asian Diaspora Cultures and Literature; and Latin American Popular Music. In his dissertation project, he examines how the myth of racial democracy and mestizaje intersects with Afro-Latin American, Asian, and Indigenous communities within ethnic urban enclaves in Latin America. His current research is conducted through comparative fieldwork between Bairro da Liberdade, São Paulo (Brazilian Japantown), and Barrio Chino, Lima (Peruvian Chinatown).
