Teaching

In 2019-2020, I am offering the following courses at Smith College:

  • Inequality and Privilege in the Global South
  • Childhood and Youth in the Global South
  • The History of Borderlands in the Global South
  • Primary Sources in Latin American History
  • Global South Migrations in Modern History

At Columbia University, I was selected to participate in the 2017-2018 Teaching Scholars program to offer my history seminar “Mexico and the United States: Migration, Politics, and Culture” in Spring 2018. Learn more about this course here.

In Spring 2017, I taught the class Primary Texts of Latin American Civilization, a seminar offered through Columbia’s Center for the Core Curriculum. Spanning several centuries of the region’s history, in this course, students read authors from Christopher Columbus and Alexander von Humboldt to Che Guevara and Rigoberta Menchú.

I worked as a Teaching Assistant in the following courses at Columbia University:

  • Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies (2015) at Columbia’s Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race
  • Latin American Civilization I (2014)
  • Mexico, From Revolution to Democracy (2014)
  • Women and Gender in Latin America (2013)
  • U.S.-Latin American Relations, 1945-present (2013, 2014)
