Gregory Swedberg is professor of Latin American history and director for the Center of Global and International Studies. He received his Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 2007. A Fulbright Hays recipient, his research interests include the effects industrialization and the Mexican Revolution had on gender and labor relations in Veracruz, Mexico. 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. 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 an article that explores the religious conflict in the state of Veracruz, Mexico during the 1930s. His most recent publication, “Moralizing Public Space: Prostitution, Disease, and Social Disorder in Orizaba, Mexico, 1910-1945” appeared in the Journal of Social History in 2017.
