Biography

Eric Zolov is a specialist in Latin American history, with research interests focused on the interplay between culture, politics, and international relations in twentieth-century Latin America, with a particular emphasis on the Cold War period. His research seeks to make connections between ideological articulations, consumptive practices, and broadly defined notions of power. He is co-editor of a documentary collection on US-Latin America relations, and has a particular expertise in Mexico, the subject of his next book.
