Academic Interests:
Dr. Bailey Glasco's academic training is in Latin American history and World history, with special emphases on Mexican history and comparative gender histories (Latin America, Africa, Europe, and the United States). She is especially interested in the impacts of race, class, and gender on historical events, as well as urban social and cultural history. She frequently teaches the World history surveys (HIST 122/123), as well as surveys in Latin American history (HIST 153: Latin America to 1810; HIST 154: Latin America Since 1810). Her upper division courses include a mix of classes specific to Mexican history (HIST 315: History of Mexico; HIST 314: The US/Mexico Border Region), as well as thematically based courses which examine the region more broadly (HIST 318: Women and Gender in Latin American History; HIST 301: The Culture of Cities in Latin America; HIST 215: Revolutions in 20th Century Latin America).

Dr. Bailey Glasco regularly presents her research at various regional and national conferences and symposiums, and has published work on the social history of Mexico City during the transition from the colonial to national periods (18th-19th century). She is currently working on a number of research and writing projects: one which focuses on the impacts of alcohol regulations and consumptions on urban structures in Mexico City toward the end of the colonial period and into the nineteenth-century; and a cultural study of the Gaceta de Mexico. She is also working on a number of short pedagogy pieces related to the teaching of world history, as well as a local history project examining family and gender dynamics in the history of the Oregon wine industry.
