Welcome to this site. I am an Associate Professor of History at the University of Montevallo where I teach courses on Latin America, World History, and Historical Methods. I received my Ph.D. from the University of California-Riverside.
My areas of research include South American militaries, U.S.-Latin American relations, and the Spanish Conquest. My book, The Pinochet Generation: the Chilean Military in the Twentieth Century, was published by the University of Alabama Press in 2016. Other publications of mine appear in The Journal of Latin American Studies, The Latin Americanist and The Encyclopedia of U.S. – Latin American Relations.
The above photo depicts a group of Chilean army cadets studying in the Military Academy’s library in 1940. It is from the news magazine Ercilla’s photo archive.
