We’re moving the LACS Faculty Colloquium online! Please join us — on Zoom — to hear Paul Gillingham, Associate Professor of History (and former Director of the LACS Program), discuss his current work.

Paul Gillingham is a historian of modern Mexico and Latin America, specializing in politics, culture and violence. His first book, Cuauhtémoc’s Bones: Forging National Identity in Modern Mexico (University of New Mexico Press, 2011), examines nationalism through the story of the forged tomb of the last Aztec emperor. It was awarded the Conference on Latin American History’s Mexican history prize.

He is co-editor of Dictablanda: Politics, Work, and Culture in Mexico, 1938-1968 (Duke University Press, 2014), and Journalism, Satire, and Censorship in Mexico (University of New Mexico Press, 2019). He is currently at work on a monograph on political violence and a national history of 20th-century Mexico. He co-edits the University of California Press series Violence in Latin American History.
