Bio/Research

Catherine LeGrand’s research focuses on the agrarian, social and cultural history of Latin America in the 19th and 20th centuries and cultural aspects of US and Canadian relations with Latin America. She has written on the impact of agricultural export economies (coffee, bananas, and sugar) on land tenure and social relations in frontier areas and on rural conflict in Colombia and the Dominican Republic. She has also published on the historiography of foreign enclaves in Latin America, on the Colombian Violencia of the 1950s, and on the current conflict in Colombia. Presently she is working on two research projects: 1) the history of social citizenship in Colombia, with political scientist Cristina Rojas of Carleton University; and 2) Canadian Catholic missionaries in the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Chile, and Bolivia (1935-present): from dictatorship to Liberation Theology and from Catholic co-operatives to Canadian development aid. Catherine LeGrand teaches the surveys of Latin American history, as well as “Race in Latin America”, “The Historical Roots of the Crisis of the 1980s in Central America,” and “Topics in Latin American History: New Approaches to Social and Cultural History”.
