Associate Professor, History

My current research is the history of Habitat for Humanity in Latin America. I am exploring how a housing project that began in Southern Georgia became a model for global community housing, especially in Latin America. In addition to social housing my related interest areas are human rights, popular culture, popular religion and nationalism in Latin America
