Research Interests and Publications:

 

I am interested in sport as an identity ritual and a ritual of power in trans-Atlantic interactions between the Americas and Europe.  My research focuses on modern Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina.   The title of my dissertation is, �Building the New Brazilian Man:  Football, Eugenics and Public Policy in the Making of the Ra�a Brasileiro, 1894-1950.� More broadly my research deals with popular culture, labor history and the history of science and attempts to engage with scholars across disciplines.
