Steve J. Stern


My specialization is Latin America (esp. colonial, Andes, Mexico, Chile). My Research and Teaching Interests: I teach and research Latin American history. My research and teaching interests vary widely, but often focus on the various ways people cope with problems of power and social conflict in their societies. Specific research themes have included Amerindian responses to colonialism, gender relations, political economy, social acquiescence and rebelliousness, and memories of trauma and political violence. My regional interests focus especially on the Andes, Mexico, and Chile/Southern Cone. I think of students, both undergraduate and graduate, as potential colleagues and teach accordingly.
