Sujay's research focuses on conflicts over democracy and political participation in Argentina's provinces after independence in 1810. He is particularly interested in Argentina's littoral region, which lies along the rivers north of Buenos Aires. In addition to frequent research trips, Sujay lived in Argentina during 1997-8. His work on Argentine history has been supported by fellowships and grants from several programs including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Fulbright program, and the US Department of Education's Foreign Language Area Studies program. He is currently working on a book manuscript, tentatively entitled A Republic of Equals, for the Dialogos series, published by University of New Mexico Press.
At Gustavus, Sujay enjoys teaching courses on Latin American history. He focuses particularly on Argentina, Mexico, Cuba, US-Latin American relations, Mexican-American history, and the Spanish conquest of the Americas. From the fall of 2007 to the summer of 2012, Sujay also served as director of the college's First Term Seminars (FTS) Program.
Sujay enjoys spending time with his two young daughters, cooking, and watching movies. He is also a huge fan of the novelists John Le Carre and Patrick O'Brian.
