Greetings! Saudações! Salve!

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

We are at the first semester of 2019. 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 - which means I teach everything from Canada to Chile, except Brasil, roughtly since 1800.

It has been a couple of years 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 Costa Rica, 2018. And in 2019: the 3rd World Congress on Environmental History. Don's miss it.

Our book series Latin American Landscapes, with the University of Arizona Press, has already five books. Awesome Chris Boyer..

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.

Carnival 2019
