Bio

I study the history of Modern Latin America and the Spanish Caribbean from a gendered perspective, with a specialization in Cuban history. My dissertation examines the cultural and intellectual politics of black motherhood in mid-Twentieth century Cuba. My teaching interests lie in comparative histories of gender, family and the body as well as exploring the social, cultural, and intellectual connections between Latin America and the Global Left. I’m also interested in broader histories of black internationalism, medicine, sexuality, and social science.
