My research focuses on race and the formation of nations and regions in Latin America. I am currently writing a book on nineteenth-century geographers and how they envisioned the racial and territorial composition of Colombia. My first book examined agrarian and regional history from the perspective of a multiracial community in Colombia’s Coffee Region over the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. I am also interested in gender and transnational links between Latin America and the United States. I accept well-prepared graduate students in modern Latin American history whose thematic interests dovetail with the History Department’s strengths.
