Dannelle Gutarra Cordero is Assistant Professor in Liberal Arts, Director of Student Experience and Progression of the Department of Liberal Arts, Widening Participation Lead of the Department of Liberal Arts and Deputy Chair of the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Forum of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Warwick.

Before joining the University of Warwick, she taught at Princeton University from 2016 to 2024 as Lecturer in African American Studies, Latin American Studies, and Gender and Sexuality Studies, while also being affiliated with the Global Health Program, the Center for Digital Humanities and the Center for Health and Wellbeing. At Princeton University, she was also Faculty Adviser of Forbes College, Director of the Archival Justice for the Enslaved Project and Chair of the Postcolonial Humanities Working Group. Gutarra Cordero has also previously taught postgraduate and undergraduate modules at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico and Virginia Commonwealth University.

Her first book, titled She Is Weeping: An Intellectual History of Racialized Slavery and Emotions in the Atlantic World, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2021. Other publications include textbooks, digital humanities/public history projects, chapters in edited volumes and articles in peer-reviewed journals. She specialises in the intersectional modern intellectual history of the Atlantic World and is currently working on two book manuscripts about scientific racism. Her priority as an anti-racist educator is her strong commitment to equality, diversity, inclusion, belonging, student wellbeing, student employability, decolonising the University, widening participation in academia and reparative justice in higher education.
