About Me

I am an Assistant Professor at Georgia Southern University, where I teach courses on Latin American and World History. My research examines the entangled history of print and politics in 19th-century Mexico City, focusing on the material practices, communities, and political and social negotiations that shaped print production, regulation, and consumption. I use my own training as a letterpress printer to examine print materials from a unique perspective: as material and visual items that emerged through conscious professional choices and actions, and influenced viewer experience beyond literacy.
