My research centers on the interconnected histories of the United States, Panama, and the Caribbean. Thematically I am interested in questions of empire-building, migration and the intersections of race, class, and sex. My book project, Empire's Angst, explores the issue of prostitution in Panama from the perspectives of sex workers, cabaret entrepreneurs, Afro-Caribbean political activists, U.S. officials, and Panamanian authorities. It utilizes court records, local newspapers, and government correspondences from archives in the U.S. and Panama.
My teaching interests include cultural histories of the United States and Latin America. In addition to teaching survey courses on colonial and modern Latin America, I also enjoy teaching courses on history through film, the history of labor and commodities, and the history of Afro-Americas. My courses seek to introduce students to the discipline of history while engaging them in debates about the past and present.
