Description

Omar Valerio-Jimnez joined the University of Iowa Department of History in 2006. His first book, River of Hope: Forging Identity and Nation in the Rio Grande Borderlands (Duke University Press, January 2013), combines his research interests in the histories of Chicana/os, the American West, and borderlands. The book explores state formation and cultural change along the Mexico-United States border during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It traces changes in ethnicity, citizenship, and gender relations among borderland residents as jurisdiction over the area passed from native peoples to Spain, Mexico, and finally the United States. His research is based on Spanish- and English-language archives in each of these countries.
