My scholarship examines how subaltern vassals negotiated state-led attempts to impose orthodoxy. My most recent project analyzes how magic and deviant sexuality intersected with one another to shape notions of race and class during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in New Spain.
My article, "Exhuming the Nahualli: Shapeshifting, Idolatry, and Orthodoxy in Colonial Mexico," is forthcoming in The Americas: A
Quarterly Review of Latin American History
My first article, "Archival Epistemology: Honor, Sodomy, and Indians in Eighteenth-Century New Mexico
" was published in Ethnohistory
in July 2019.
