Areas of interest

My research areas during 1975-1989 concentrated on Soviet perceptions of Latin American socioeconomic problems and Soviet policy towards Latin America and published several articles mostly on Soviet perceptions towards the Central American crisis.

Since the beginning of the 1990s I started working on Regionalism on the social implications of NAFTA for Mexico and on gender issues regarding academics, citizenship and International Relations. I studied women and citizenship through a project that compared women’s perceptions and attitudes towards the concept of citizenship in rural and urban areas of Mexico. Another project of research studied women workers networks in the NAFTA region (financed by SIDA 2004-2006).

Within this project my research my partner, Cirila Quintero from El Colegio de la Frontera Norte in Mexico and me have tried to follow the strategies of labour organizing of women workers at maquiladora industries through the case of several NGOs and some trade unions situated mostly in the North Eastern part of the Mexican border.

As part of this project and together with a number of Mexican colleagues we were able to write a publish and article at Feminist Economics at the end of 2012 questioning the benefits of maquiladora work for women and also the assumed unity of the workers in the South regarding the issue of Global labour standards.

Current research
As part of the project on women workers in the NAFTA area I’m currently writing a book in Spanish to be published in Mexico, that would gather most of the results of this project together with those of the next project on El Salvador. The book will also gather the results of the continuation of the issues studied in NAFTA with the project: “Global Economic Restructuring in El Salvador: Women’s Voices and Agency facing maquila work and migrant remittance” financed by SIDA during 2008-2010

The field work of this project was done during 2009 and the preliminary results have been written in several conference papers, one published article and a final project report. I have also engaged, together with Anja Franck from Economic geography in an overview of diverse feminist perspectives on the issue of the global labour standards debate specially in the South.

We are planning to write together a journal article and possibly edit a thematic number on these issues in some academic journal during 2012. Finally, since 2010 I have, together with Aida Aragao from Uppsala University been working on a new project on the failed alliances of women’s movements and the left in power in two cases in Latin America: Nicaragua during the second Sandinista government and Bolivia during Evo Morales presidency.

Teaching and tutoring
The interests developed within my research have reflected themselves in the courses I have taught. My experience in teaching started in Mexico after my doctor examination, in 1981 and has continued since then in the US, Spain, Argentina, again Mexico and Sweden up to now.

My teaching has gone from the history of the Soviet Union to all kinds of subjects regarding Latin America. But also through basic courses on International relations, development theories and method of research, gender and development and international relations to theories of globalization.

Teaches in International relations, development issues, gender issues: women and citizenship, transnational actors / movements, women in International Relations.

Method teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
