The Latin American Fashion Reader (Berg Publishers, 2005) was awarded the 2006 Arthur P. Whitaker Prize by the Middle Atlantic Council of Latin American Studies.  It was also shortlisted for the Costume Society of America's Milia L. Davenport Award.  Reviews have appeared in Foreign Affairs, Elle (Argentine edition), among others.  If you purchase it through the amazon box to the right, all proceeds will be donated to the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures.

My current research focuses on cultural policy, environmental culture, and eco-fashion in particular.  Stay tuned!
