Assistant Professor, Rowan University
My work studies the history of human rights, transnational networks, Latin America, and international relations. In my book , Of Light and Struggle: Social Justice, Human Rights, and Accountability in Uruguay, I explore the origins and evolution of human rights discourse in Uruguay, particularly during its transition back to democratic rule. The research addresses issues of transitional justice, the rise of the transnational human rights movement, and the shifting terrain of human rights in the 1970s and 1980s. The book was selected as a 2023 Outstanding Academic Title by Choice magazine.
I am also the co-editor of the volume, Uruguay in Transnational Perspective (Routledge, 2023).
My new project, tentatively titled Jewish Internationalism and the Southern Cone Dictatorships, explores Jewish experiences and transnational responses to the military regimes across Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile in the late Cold War.
I have taught courses on human rights, Latin America, social movements, and U.S. foreign policy at Harvard University, New York University, Tufts University, Hunter College, and St. Francis College. I am currently an Assistant Professor of History and International Studies at Rowan University.
