Veronica Castillo-Muñoz

Verónica Castillo-Muñoz is an associate professor in the Department of History at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She is an interdisciplinary scholar with training in Gender history, Latin America, and U.S. history. She has written widely on the intersections between gender, family migration, and the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. Her research has been funded by the Fulbright Fellowship, the NEH Huntington Library Fellowship, the Hellman Foundation, and the UC President’s Faculty Fellowship in the Humanities. Castillo-Muñoz is the author of the book, The Other California: Land Identity and Politics on the Mexican Borderlands (2016). Her current book project, "Women and Revolution: A Tale of Violence and Deception Across the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands," uses intimacy as a lens to understand how gender operated during the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), and how women negotiated war, violence, and family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border. She has served as Book Reviews Editor for the Journal of Mexican Studies/ Estudios Mexicanos.
