EDUCATION

Ph.D. University of Wisconsin-Madison

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My specializations are Modern Latin America; gender, race, and class; the cultural history of cartography, and indigenous history.  I completed my doctoral studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2012 and was a visiting professor at Yale University’s Agrarian studies program in 2014-15.

My research and teaching interests include Latin America in the 19th and 20th Centuries, especially Guatemala and Central America. I am currently completing a book on modernity and race during the rise of capitalism in nineteenth and early twentieth century Guatemala and I am launching a new project on the history of Cold War cartography. I am also interested in historical theory and oral history methodologies.
