Bio/Research

My research and teaching explore themes of mass urbanization, inequality, domesticity, state formation, and political economy. While I have primarily focused in my research on Chilean history since the 1950s, I have also published work on Guatemala. In 2004, I published a book of collaborative oral histories, Historias poblacionales: hacia una memoria incluyente (Santiago: CEDECO) and I have also co-edited a forthcoming volume titled Anthrohistory: Unsettling Knowledge, Questioning Discipline (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press). I am currently completing a book manuscript, A Home of One’s Own: The Urban Politics of Propriety in Chile. While rooted in the concerns and debates of Latin American history, I have long been informed by the perspectives of other disciplines. I received a dual PhD, in fact, from the Doctoral Program in Anthropology and History at the University of Michigan in 2007. I have continued my transdisciplinary pursuits at Michigan State University, where I am also a faculty member in the Global Urban Studies Program and affiliated with the Center for Gender in Global Context and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Courses taught: IAH 203: Latin America and the World: Tensions of Empire and Nation HST 381: Latin America: The National Period HST 486: The Latin American City and Its Discontents HST 486: Rethinking the Cold War from Las Américas HST 850/GUSP 850: The City and Its Discontents: Rethinking Marginality in Modern Urban Society
