Dr André Jockyman Roithmann

We are very pleased to announce that Dr André Jockyman Roithmann will be joining the Institute of the Americas in September 2023 as Lecturer (Teaching) in Latin American History.

André is a historian of Latin America specialising in nineteenth-century Brazil and the history of political thought. He holds a DPhil in History from the University of Oxford and is currently preparing his thesis, Republicanism and the State between Brazil and the River Plate: Rio Grande do Sul, 1808-1845, for publication with Oxford Historical Monographs (Oxford University Press). This monograph analyses the state-building processes and transnational revolutionary networks that underpinned the rise and fall of the Rio Grandense Republic (1836-1845), a failed separatist state in southern Brazil. André, has previously published on Brazil’s 1848 Praieira Revolution and is revising pieces on topics including the 1830s origins of Brazilian feminism and the relationship between River Plate caudillos and constitutionalism. At the Institute of the Americas, he is looking forward to teaching a range of UG and PGT Latin American History modules.  A very warm welcome to him!
