424A Capers Hall

Nancy Aguirre specializes in Latin American history with an emphasis on modern Mexico and the U.S./Mexico Borderlands. She earned a B.A. from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, an M.A. from the University of Chicago, and her Ph.D. from the University of Texas at El Paso. Her research focuses on right-wing Mexican exiles forced into the United States during the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1920.

Recently, she contributed to the volume Women of the Right: Comparisons and Interplay Across Borders (Penn State University Press, 2012). Her work examines right-wing ideology, immigration, nationalism, gender, media, and identity.

Aguirre teaches Colonial Latin America and the World Civilization surveys. Future courses will include Modern Mexico and Modern Latin America. She looks forward to teaching upper-division and graduate courses on immigration, right-wing governments in Latin America, religion and gender, and the Mexican Revolution.
