    Making Families Through Adoption: Legal Imaginaries and Cross-Class Adoption Practices in Morelos, Mexico
    My project explores (1) how new legal initiatives and governmental practices that encourage the “full” adoption of poor children are reconfiguring the relationship of family and state in Mexico; and (2) the ways in which new legal conceptions of kinship reshape or censure other existing informal cross-class adoption practices related to domestic service. With the Mexican state’s adherence to international adoption conventions since the 1980s, and the shift towards the right in Mexican politics since…

    The Empire of Apostles in the Old World and the New: Jesuits in Brazil and India, 1542-1697
    The age of discoveries, which conventionally inaugurates the early modern era, begins with the seminal voyages of Christopher Columbus to America in 1492 and Vasco da Gama to India in 1498. The “Indies,” as these newly discovered parts of the world were called, symbolized any place which presented a challenge to Christian missionary activity. Under its framework, India, Brazil, southern Italy and other European regions occupied the same plane. Nonetheless, by the seventeenth century, this dispersive g…

    The War Against Trachoma: Ophthalmology between Jews and Arabs, 1914-1973
    My dissertation investigates how the ocular disease trachoma became a focal point in reconfiguring notions of “Arab” and “Jew” through bodies, medical practices, scientific discourses, and ethnographic observations in Mandate Palestine and Israel from 1914-1973. Trachoma’s unique etiology and prevalence in Arab and Yemenite Jewish settlements allowed Jewish ophthalmologists in Mandate Palestine to construct it as a marker of severe poverty, cultural backwardness, and the “East.” I argue tha…

    Networks of Exchange: Propaganda and Information Society in Modern Chinese Literature
    In focusing on the emergence of literary propaganda as a central site of information management, my dissertation will explore the development of a modern, transnational information state in China between 1920 and 1960. Along with news media, literature constituted a crucial vector in states' involvement with information. The confrontation between state institutions devoted to managing information (including both censorship and propaganda) on the one hand, and the urban media environments and readerships…

    "Socialism of Sentiment": Culture, Progress and Community in the Early Romanian Left (1870-1914)
    My dissertation questions the traditional assumption of the absence of an indigenous socialist tradition in Romania prior to the Soviet takeover in 1944 by exploring the cultural and intellectual history of early socialism in Romania between 1870 and 1914. Moving away from the unimpressive political and institutional history of Romanian socialism, I argue that this period witnessed the emergence of an influential leftist intellectual tradition, particularly visible in the fields of literary criticism and…

    Vehicle of Progress: The Santiago Metro and the Techno-Politics of Military Rule in Chile, 1965–1990
    My dissertation is a history of the Santiago metro system in the context of changing techno-political regimes in Chile. My central question is why public transportation became a shared concern among diverse actors between 1965 and 1990 and how their proposals changed over time. Planning for the metro began in 1965, during a period of democratic state-led development under President Eduardo Frei. Transnational from the start, the metro united Chilean engineering with French technology, funding, and experti…

    Constructing Identity through Liturgy: Devotion to the Saints in Medieval Aquitaine
    The formation of communal identity has long been a topic of interest to scholars in a variety of disciplines. My dissertation investigates this issue from a new perspective through my examination of the construction of identity at three musical and ecclesiastical centers in medieval Aquitaine: the cathedrals of Saint-Étienne in Toulouse, Saint-Just-et-Saint-Pasteur in Narbonne, and Saint-Trophime in Arles. Using these case studies, I argue that the music, texts, and ritual actions of the liturgy were a c…

    Revolutionary Ballet: The performance of class, militarism, and masculinity in France, 1789-1815
    Beginning with the court of Louis XIV in 1643 until the French Revolution in 1789, ballet was a primary means by which French men performed their noble rank, martial prowess, and masculine ideals. Male dancers remained preeminent until the middle of the nineteenth century, when the traditional male dominance of French ballet turned sharply in favor of ballerinas. Scholars have attributed the rise of the ballerina to the social and political changes of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods, but they hav…

    Welfare with Interest. The political and distributional consequences of a credit-based welfare regime.
    Easier access to private credit and the subsequent rise in household indebtedness strongly influence structure and scope of welfare regimes and shape the political coalitions that sustain them. While some countries rely on tax- or contribution-financed welfare models, others have shifted toward a "credit-based welfare model." This project unpacks the causal relationship between credit and welfare across affluent democracies and shows how elite preferences and institutional configurations determine politic…

    Coca Nation: The Protean Politics of the Coca Leaf in Bolivian Nationalism (1900 – 1961)
    This dissertation is a cultural history of the development, in the twentieth century, of Bolivian coca politics in relation to U.S.-led international anti-narcotics regimes. It investigates the processes through which Bolivians constructed- or reconstructed- coca as an indigenous drug. Challenging essentialist notions of coca as embodying autochthonous Andean culture, my research examines the roles of a broad array of Bolivia's social groups, including but not limited to Indians, in the formation of the…
