Ph.D., Florida International University, 2017.
Dr. Gracia Solis is a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of History at FIU, where she teaches in-person, hybrid and online courses in World, Latin American, and U.S. history. As co-director of the Written and Digital History Program, she designed and implemented a training program which engaged participants in the use of various web-based applications and tools that can be used to enhance historical research and digital pedagogies. Dr. Solis’s research interests include the history of education, literacy, and culture. In examining the private pedagogical projects of nineteenth-century Peruvian booksellers, writers, and educators, her doctoral dissertation demonstrated how their combined efforts established key institutions of the modern Teaching State, including a national textbook industry, pedagogical newspapers, associations, and conferences. Her research has been supported by Harvard University’s History Project Research Award, FIU’s Broad Research Fellowship, and the Tinker Foundation’s Research Grant. In 2017, she received the Richmond Brown Award for Graduate Student Scholarship.
