Book Description

In the Vortex of Violence examines the uncharted history of lynching in post-revolutionary Mexico. Based on a collection of previously untapped sources, the book examines why lynching became a persistent practice during a period otherwise characterized by political stability and decreasing levels of violence. It explores how state formation processes, as well as religion, perceptions of crime, and mythical beliefs, contributed to shaping people's understanding of lynching as a legitimate form of justice. Extending the history of lynching beyond the United States, this book offers key insights into the cultural, historical, and political reasons behind the violent phenomenon and its continued practice in Latin America today.

Author Bio

I am a historian and sociologist who specializes on questions of violence, crime, religion, and gender in twentieth and twentieth-first century Latin America, with a particular focus on Mexico and Central America.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Latin American History at Loyola University Chicago. Prior to joining Loyola, I was Assistant Professor of International Relations at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) and a Visiting Fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame. I hold a PhD in Sociology and Historical Studies from the New School for Social Research.

My book In the Vortex of Violence: Lynching, Extralegal Justice, and the State in Post-Revolutionary Mexico (University of California Press, 2020) examines the uncharted history of lynching during the formative decades of the post-revolutionary period (1930-1960). Based on an array of previously untapped historical sources, the book contributes to globalize the history of lynching beyond the United States, while offering key insights into the cultural, historical, and political reasons behind the continuing presence of lynching in Latin America today.

I am the lead editor of the books Violence and Crime in Latin America: Representations and Politics (University of Oklahoma Press, 2017) and Human Security and Chronic Violence in Mexico: New Perspectives and Proposals from Below (Editorial Porrúa, 2019).

My work has been published in the Journal of Latin American Studies, Latin American Research Review, and The Americas.

I was the Senior Report Advisor of the 2013-2014 UNDP Human Development Report  Citizen Security with a Human Face. I have also authored specialized reports for Wilson Center for International Scholars and the Norwegian Peacebuilding Resource Center (NOREF).
