About James Sanders

Associate Professor Jamie Sanders specializes in the history of nineteenth-century Latin America and the Atlantic World. His first book, Contentious Republicans (Duke University Press), explores how indigenous groups, ex-slaves, and small farmers created a democratic politics in nineteenth-century Colombia. His second work will examine how Latin Americans imagined and practiced a republican Atlantic World community in the nineteenth century.
Jamie grew up in a small town near the Florida/Georgia border. He received his B.A. from the University of Florida (where, we suppose due to rampant grade inflation, he somehow was co-Valedictorian) and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh. He has lived and conducted research in Bogotá, Cali, Popayán, Quito, Mérida, Montevideo, Guanajuato, and Mexico City. He comes to Utah State after teaching at the University of Pittsburgh, Southern Methodist University and Brooklyn College.
