About Me

I am a historian of modern Mexico, interested in issues of women, gender, sexuality.  My research focuses broadly on the intersections of gender and sexuality with questions of political legitimacy and economic development.  I am currently woking on a project looking at   women and the Catholic Church during the Cold War.
