Bio/Research

Most of my work centers on the history and culture of the revolutionary independence period throughout Latin America and the Atlantic World. I am interested in issues of cross-cultural contact, national identity formation, and the creation of patriotic civic cultures from 1780-1830. Currently, I am completing a book on Spanish America independence leaders who lived in London between 1808-1829. This project traces the effect of extended foreign residence on the Spanish Americans' sense of national identity, and also documents the tremendous intellectual and cultural influence that Great Britain exerted upon these men's vision of post-independent nationhood.
