Ph.D., University of Washington, 2004
I am an assistant professor of Latina/o history, with a specialization in 20th century Mexican American history. I received my PhD from the University of Washington in 2004 and enjoy teaching a wide-range of topics in U.S. history, including modern America, the Latina/o and Chicana/o experience, women and gender, and the history of race and ethnicity in America. Awarded a 2007-2008 Ford Postdoctoral Fellowship, I am currently completing a book on the history of Mexican American women on the World War II home front in Los Angeles.
