Robert Franco,

Robert Franco

I am a historian of twentieth-century Mexico, with a speciality in politics, gender, sexuality, and culture. My dissertation, Revolution in the Sheets: The Sexual Politics and Intimate Practices of the Mexican Left, explores the issues of homophobia, heterosexism, and antagonism towards sexual politics in Mexico's left-wing parties and organizations.

I graduated with a B.A. in History (summa cum laude and departmental honors) from the University of Pennsylvania where I was a Mellon-Mays Foundation and Penn Humanities Forum fellow. At Duke University, I am a Deans Graduate Fellow and received my M.A. in 2017. My primary advisor is Dr. Jocelyn Olcott.
