Research

I am currently completing two further books, Princess Isabel of Brazil, 1846-1921: Gender, Class and Power in the Nineteenth Century and Brazil: The Burdens of Nationhood, 1852-1910. My secondary research interest lies in the history of packing (by mule and horse) in British Columbia and of Latin Americans who settled in the province (1858-1920).
