I am originally from Northern California and while I miss the West Coast, I've loved being here at Princeton too. I am in the history department and my research focuses on the U.S. Southwest. My first book, An American Language: The History of Spanish in the United States, talks about the long history of Spanish as a language of politics since the mid-nineteenth century. I’m now working on a book that looks at the relationship between Mexican Americans and Indigenous peoples in the Southwest. I teach courses about the long history of Latinos in the United States and about how the border came to look the way it does today. I hope to teach courses on the history of education in the future.
I love advising at Whitman and look forward to meeting and working with you. I encourage all of my students to use my office hours and welcome your visit, even if it is just to say hello. Hopefully it will be possible to return to the dining hall, where I can usually be found pretty regularly.
