About Me

Gregory Swedberg is associate professor of Latin American history. He received his Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 2007. A Fulbright Hays recipient, his research examines the effects industrialization and the Mexican Revolution had on gender and labor relations in Orizaba, Mexico, from 1920-1940. His courses are geographically broad but emphasize the pressing issues of underdevelopment, neoliberalism, and imperialism, as well as how economic, racial, and gender inequalities contribute to systems of violence. He realized his love for Latin American history and culture in graduate school after working as a teaching assistant in Puebla, Mexico. Recently, he traveled with students to Rio de Janeiro as part of a course exploring culture and race in Brazil. He is a member of the Latin American Studies Association, the American Historical Association, and the New England Council of Latin American Studies. He is currently revising his manuscript, “Dangerous Women and Defiant Men Gendering Family, Labor and Community in Postrevolutionary Orizaba, Mexico, 1920-1940,” and coauthoring an article exploring the religious conflict in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, during the 1930s.
