I study counterinsurgency, nationalism, and the development of social sciences in modern Latin America. My current research is centered on the history and politics of archaeological fieldwork in Guatemala. I’m particularly interested in understanding how archaeological sites became contested grounds upon which various actors staked claims concerning national identity and political opposition in the period surrounding the Guatemalan Civil War.
