Visiting Assistant Professor of History, History

B.A., M.A. California State University Los Angeles, Ph.D. University of Minnesota. I am a historian of Modern Latin America. My research focuses on Central America and I am interested in exploring forgotten events, particularly those that reveal the bright histories of these countries—events such as the Guatemalan Ten Years of Spring, the Costa Rican Civil War, the military reforms of the 1970s in Honduras, and the 1948 Revolution in El Salvador. I am also interested in Migration, Memory Studies, History & Literature, and History & Music.
