Description:

Geraldo Cadava (PhD Yale, 2008) specializes in US history, with emphases on the US-Mexico borderlands and Latino populations. His book Standing on Common Ground: The Making of a Sunbelt Borderland won the 2014 Frederick Jackson Turner Award. It is about the shared cultural and commercial ties between Arizona and Sonora that demonstrate how the United States and Mexico continue to shape one another, despite their political and ethnic divisions. He is beginning a project on Latino Conservatism, and his other research interests include the US-Mexico border; memories of the US-Mexico War between 1846 and 1916; and the movement of Mexican and Mexican American artists between Mexico and the United States, from 1920 to 2000.
