Greetings! Saudações! Salve!

...or any other expression that welcomes you to this page.

We are almost over with the first semester of 2017. And my site needs updating.


The basics: I work at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Instituto de História, where I teach History of the Americas coordinate the area of Americas - which means I teach everything from Canada to Chile, except Brasil, covering roughtly since 1800.

It has been a year since I finished my post-doctoral fellowship at the RCC, and I still miss that great place. I haven't forgotten you, Katie and Arielle. I will be back (in my best Terminator voice).

We went to the awesome SOLCHA meeting, in Puebla, Mexico in 2016, and we are already preparing the new one in Costa Rica, 2018. And big surprised for 2019. Stay tuned. But for next week, I am on my way to Zagreb, Croacia, for the ESEH meeting.

Our book series Latin American Landscapes, with the University of Arizona Press, published its third book, by Regina Horta Duarte.

If you are a student, look to my new page at UFRJ. If you are a colleague, maybe you want to know my research interests - there is a page for you too.

If you are a friend, just send me an email. I would love to hear from you.

June 2017
