I am an Assistant Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame as well as a Faculty Fellow in the Institute for Latino Studies. I specialize in United States urban, cultural, and Latina/o history. My research explores the historical formation of Latina/o landscapes and urban spaces as they found expression in the built environment, cultural practices, politics, and racial formations. I’m also interested in interrelated questions of gender, capitalism, and architecture. These interests are reflected in my book in progress, provisionally entitled, The Second City Anew: Mexicans, Urban Culture, and Migration in the Transformation of Chicago, 1940-1986. I have been the recipient of fellowships and grants from Northwestern, Princeton, and the National Museum of American History. Most recently, in 2013-2014, I held a UC Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship at UC San Diego.
