I am a historian, author, women, and gender consultant and speaker working in Taos, New Mexico. I am a native of Buenos Aires, Argentina and immigrated to the U.S. as a child. Before my current work as a historian, I had a successful career in business, non-profit leadership experience and writing for general audiences. My research interests include the historical development of social, religious and feminist thought in modern America with a particular expertise in women and gender history and the emergence of liberation theology. The latter is the subject of my new book entitled, The World Come of Age: An Intellectual History of Liberation Theology Available from Oxford University Press or online retailer. Here is a podcast interview.
Currently, I am a podcast co-host for New Books Network covering women and gender, religion, intellectual history and American Studies; a venue that allows me to share my conversations with scholars about their most recent work. My training and experience prepare me for a wide variety of intellectual and cultural projects. I am available for consultation to institutions and to address community groups, conferences, and the media.
