Abstract
My research interests include the Latin American and European avant-gardes, the city and urban theory, the genre of the chronicle in the 19th and 20th centuries, journalism and media theory. My book, Urban Chroniclers in Modern Latin America: The Shared Intimacy of Everyday Life is forthcoming in December 2011 by the University of Texas Press. In 2009, I published a collection of the chronicles of Cube Bonifant, a Mexican woman journalist who began publishing in the 1920's, entitled Una pequeña marquesa de Sade: Crónicas selectas 1921-1948. My articles have appeared in Hispanic Review, Revista de Crítica Literaria Latinoamericana and Revista de Estudios Hispánicos. I am now beginning research on the particular relationship between print journalism and the avant-gardes in post-revolutionary Mexico.

I grew up in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. I received my B.A. in History and Comparative Literature at U. C. Berkeley and completed my Ph.D. at Harvard University. Before coming to UC Irvine, I was Assistant Professor of Spanish and Director of Latin American and Latino Studies at Fordham University.
