Carlos spoke with Dr. Bianca Premo, Professor in the Department of History at Florida International University, to discuss her past and current research and time in the archives.
Dr. Premo is scholar with a wide range of research interests in Latin American history, including childhood and youth, the law, intellectual history, gender, slavery and ethnohistory.
Her original regional expertise was in the colonial Andes and Lima, Peru, but in recent years Dr. Premo has explored the history of Mexico City, Oaxaca, and the rural region around the city of Toledo.
Current research projects are bringing her back to Lima and sending her off to the twentieth century.
