Andrea Ho's picture

Andrea Ho is a PhD student in modern U.S. history. Originally from Toronto, Andrea studies the fraught histories of Indigenous incarceration and resistance in the American West. More broadly, Andrea is interested in the history of the carceral state, social movements, Indigenous urbanization, the political economy of settler colonialism, Indigenous dispossession, and labor in twentieth century U.S. history. She is eager to build upon existing community partnerships with Indigenous communities and local advocates to continue her commitment to community engaged scholarship. Andrea is also a co-convener for the Racial Capitalism and Carceral State Working Group.

Prior to Yale, Andrea completed her MA in History at New York University and worked with a prisoners’ rights research institute and the Diné (Navajo) Policy Institute. She holds a BSc from the University of Toronto. Andrea’s work has been generously supported by the Organization of American States.
