Visiting Assistant Professor, Latin America in History

I teach on all aspects of colonial and especially modern Latin American HistoryIn my research, I explore relationships between race, class, culture and regional identity in twentieth-century Brazil. In African Brazilian Culture and Regional Identity in Bahia, Brazil (University of Florida Press, 2013), I examined how African-Brazilian cultural practices – including carnival batucadas, samba and capoeira – became central to regional identity in the northeast state of Bahia.
