Dr. Bret McEvoy

Short Biography

Dr. Bret McEvoy received his doctorate at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, U.S.A., where he studied International Relations, Comparative Politics, Critical Race Theory and Gender Analysis.  His research and writing focuses on dominant racial and gender groups, how they (we) perpetuate systemic oppression, and why and how some group members seek to challenge the systems that preserve their dominance.  His dissertation on “White Reckonings” accompanied anti-racist white activists and male-identified feminists as they endeavored to contribute to transformative justice possibilities in the United States.  His current research looks comparatively and globally at issues of colonial-racial reckoning and repair, with a particular focus on Germany and the United States.  Prior to his graduate education, he also worked in global humanitarian assistance and human rights, where he has managed humanitarian programs in a number of disaster, conflict and post-crisis environments.  Raised in the United States, he currently lives in Germany with his German wife and binational daughter.
