Dr Paul Gillingham
Paul Gillingham (DPhil, Oxon, 2006) specialises in politics, culture and violence in modern Mexico, and has published numerous articles and book chapters on these subjects. His first book, Cuauhtémoc’s Bones: Forging National Identity in Modern Mexico (University of New Mexico Press, 2011), was awarded the Conference on Latin American History’s Mexican history prize. He is co-editor of Dictablanda: Politics, Work, and Culture in Mexico, 1938-1968 (Duke University Press, 2014), and is currently working on three projects: an edited volume on journalism, satire and censorship, a monograph on political violence and a national history of twentieth-century Mexico. Gillingham is Director of Northwestern’s Latin American & Caribbean Studies Program, and co-edits the Violence in Latin American History series at the University of California Press.

This session was chaired by Dr Bill Booth and it is part of the new UCL Institute of the Americas Democracy and Governance in the Americas Seminar series, convened by Dr Néstor Castañeda.
