Visiting Instructor of History
Teaching and Research Interests
I specialize in indigenous peoples, religion, and gender in Latin America. I received my AB in History from Vassar College, MA in Latin American Studies from the University of New Mexico, and I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in History at the University of New Mexico. I am an American Association of University Women (AAUW) fellow and have been the recipient of several Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) grants to study indigenous languages in Mexico. My dissertation, “Contested Spaces: Protestantism in Oaxaca, 1920-1994,” examines religious competition and conflict in Mixtec and Zapotec communities. I teach courses on Mexican history, religion in Latin America, and social movements.
