My name is Lucia and I am a historian. I am currently on my second year of graduate study aiming for my doctorate in history. My research and this blog are part of my journey as I travel between Latin America and the US, visiting archives and expanding my interests.

This blog will begin with my research trip to Lima during the summer of 2017. The research that will be conducted pertains to the period of internal conflict in Peru, focusing on grassroots organizations and local leaders during the 1980’s and 1990’s.

I plan to discuss my findings, whether testimonies, interviews, or documents, as well as some of the historiography and cultural productions of the period, and of Lima itself.
