Guilherme Baratho

Sociology PhD Student

Guilherme’s current project is focused on understanding the growth in support for Brazil’s Political Right Wing, specifically during the 2018 presidential election. More broadly, he is interested in using qualitative methods to study the role of class, religion, and corruption in relation to politics and urban structure. Before joining Northeastern in 2021, he completed his Master’s in Sociology at the University of Chicago and holds a B.A. in Sociology, minor in Portuguese, from the University of California, Los Angeles. Outside of academia, he enjoys discovering music on vinyl and playing guitar.
