I study the Americas from a hemispheric, comparative historical perspective.  My research and publishing has largely centered on Mexican social and cultural topics: urban history and geography, social movements, popular ritual, religion, festivals, film, photography, media, art and music.  I am deeply concerned with human rights violations as related to immigration, repression of journalists and the drug war.  I teach a wide range of undergraduate courses from ancient Peru to pirates and punk.  I enjoy riding bikes, teaching spin, d.j.-ing, swimming, yoga, playing drums, guitar and tenor sax, walking my dogs and playing with our son Jasper.  I welcome your questions and comments:
