- 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.
