Eduardo Contreras

Ph.D., The University of Chicago

Eduardo Contreras is assistant professor of United States history. He teaches survey classes as well as courses on U.S. Latino history; race and racism; and the American West. His manuscript, Latinos in the Liberal City: From San Francisco's Big Strike to Gay Liberation, charts the diversity and evolution of Latino political life from the 1930s to the 1970s. The monograph examines unionization efforts; civil rights organizing; electoral politics; mobilizations during the Great Society; and feminist, gay, and lesbian activism. His second research project, "Central Americans in the Age of U.S. Empire: Migration, Opportunity, and Survival in the Twentieth Century," investigates Central Americans' migration to, and settlement in, the United States from the opening of the Panama Canal (1914) to the Peace Accords of 1992.
