M.A. Candidate

Fields: Modern U.S., Women and Gender Studies
Education: B.A., The College of New Jersey, 2015

Interests: U.S. Empire, transnational history, Latin America, philosophies of history, feminist history

I’m interested in exploring why the meaning of empire and imperialism changes in the United States. This implies not simply cataloguing U.S. policy rhetoric versus its execution, but rather asking how imperial truths become constructed, contested, internalized, imagined – in short –believed.
