I am interested in the study of 19th century Texas and its relationship with Mexico. I'm interested in the political and cultural formations of the various peoples of the region that accompanied the rapid changes of political power that flowed around them. In other words, I’m interested in the conversion of the 19th century borderlands into bordered lands, and the projects of nation-building that accompanied that process.
