For my comprehensive exams I chose Latin America as a regional field and designed a combination of environmental history and political ecology for my thematic field. I had the honour and pleasure of working with Bill French and Alejandra Bronfman for the Latin America Field, while Tina Loo and Juanita Sundberg were my expert mentors for the thematic field. My comps were defended in March of 2011.
In the links to the right you'll find my reading lists and you can find responses to many of the readings in the Reviews section of this site. I have posted some of the historiographical essays that grew out of my comps in the Articles section.
