Benjamin’s research focuses upon the politics of race in the United States, especially as they intersect with entrepreneurship, consumerism, colonialism, and the U.S. policy toward the Caribbean. Benjamin has presented his research on the mainland U.S., Hawaii, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, and in the Caribbean. He has published several book reviews and a journal article. In early 2010, Benjamin, along with Dr. Gregory Hall, co-edited a book, Eternal Colonialism, with the University Press of America. Benjamin will soon publish a book manuscript, African Americans and Recent Policies Toward the Caribbean: Haiti, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, with Caribbean Studies Press.

Research Interests
My teaching and research focus on American Politics and Public Administration. While my research also falls within these two broad areas, its themes are more specific. For several years, I have been interested in the impact of delegation on public policy. That is, how is policy influenced by the relationship between Congress and the bureaucracy or Congress and the States? More recently, I have been also looking at the impact of campaigns on elections, and particularly at the impact of campaign appearances.
