Research Interests

I study the political cultures of early Anglo and Latin America with a focus on classical republicanism, creole nationalism, mass media, citizenship, and the public sphere. My primary interest is in early American political aesthetics, including neoclassicism, indigenismo, technological futurism, science fiction, and utopian/dystopian literatures.
