Dr Julie Gibbings
Senior Lecturer; Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
I am a historian of Modern Latin America and Indigenous histories of the Americas more broadly. My research examines histories of social struggles over political modernities and racial inequalities in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
I was born and raised in the western Canadian prairies as a settler in Treaty 4 territory of the nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakoda, and the homeland of the Métis/Michif Nation. I was trained as a Latin American historian at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
At Edinburgh, I am the Director Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and a Senior Lecturer in the History of the Americas.
