Biography | Dr. Cynthia Radding, Chair
Gussenhoven Distinguished Professor of History and Latin American Studies, The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Ph.D. University of California, San Diego 1990
Research Interests and professional commitments:
Professor Radding’s research interests in Latin American colonial history focus on the intersections between environmental and ethnographic history. Her current work exemplifies methods for comparative history, across North and South America and within the broad borderlands region of northern Mexico and southwestern U.S. Her scholarship is rooted in the imperial borderlands of the Spanish and Portuguese American empires, emphasizing the role of indigenous peoples and other colonized groups in shaping those borderlands, transforming their landscapes, and producing colonial societies. Her current project, “Bountiful Deserts, Imperial Shadows,” explores the ecological transition between wild and cultivated plants, the cultural intersections of sedentary and nomadic peoples, and the production of knowledge in northern Mexico. Radding is co-editor with Chad Bryant (UNC-Chapel Hill) and Paul Readman (Kings College, London) of Borderlands in World History (Palgrave, 2014). She is Past President of the Conference on Latin American History (2011-2013) of the American Historical Association; currently she is book review editor of HAHR and, in the past, has served on the Editorial Boards of HAHR and The Americas and on the Advisory Council of the Inter-American Foundation. Her
