As a recent graduate in the Department of Anthropology, Nicholas is highly interested in Latin American social and political movements, the relationship between art and political society, ethnography, filmmaking, and video production. In 2009-2010, he spent a year abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied Argentine history, film, and society, and furthermore developed an interest in the anthropology of music.
