Current projects: UN International Women's Year, Concha Michel, Motherhood in Twentieth-Century Mexico
I work on feminist history of modern Mexico. My first book, Revolutionary Women in Postrevolutionary Mexico, explores questions of gender and citizenship in the 1930s. I am currently working on two book-length projects: a history of the 1975 UN International Women's Year Conference in Mexico City (under contract with Oxford University Press), and a biography of the activist and folksinger Concha Michel. I am also developing a long-term project on the labor, political, and conceptual history of motherhood in twentieth-century Mexico.
