What I Love About Emmanuel:
I love the inclusive and reflective approach to learning at the College. I also love its strategic location in the heart of the Fenway with access to museums, neighboring institutions of higher learning, and historical districts that encourage experiential learning opportunities.
My research interests include the evolution of regional and national identities in Latin America and the American West. I am particularly interested in the ways that ethnic, class, and gender lines blur during periods of social conflict. My current research explores the notions of nationalism and political identity as they evolved among indigenous communities and other rural groups during the wars of independence (1809-1825) in the Andean region of South America.
