  • Graduate Student

I earned my B.A. from Connecticut College in Latin American Studies in 2011. After I graduated, I spent 8 years living and working in Lima, Peru where I taught History and English at a high school. During my time in Lima I became interested in local labor and feminist struggles. For my M.A. thesis at Pitt, I examined how Peruvian legislation and political debates around domestic workers changed during the 1950s and 60s. I am currently developing a dissertation project that looks at domestic worker labor organizing in Lima from 1956-1975.
