Savala presents paper at American Historical Association conference

Joshua Savala, a visiting assistant professor of history, presented a paper on the relationship between space, policing, and labor in the department of Arequipa, Peru, at the January meeting of the American Historical Association (AHA).

The paper Circulation and the Politics of Space in Policing Arequipa, Peru analyzes the ways in which police interacted with the geographical differences and distances of the department, and the complex and conflictual relationship between police and labor movements in the early 20th century.

The AHA planning committee also asked Savala to take part in a session called “Ask an Assistant Professor,” a panel discussion designed to offer a space for graduate students and those seeking professorship to speak with an assistant professor about the job, the current market for professors, and more.
