Carlos Aguirre is a social historian specializing in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Peru and Latin America. He has written extensively about slavery, abolition, crime, and punishment. More recently, he has expanded my research interests into the history of the book and the printing press, the history of intellectuals, the history of soccer, and the role of archives in the shaping of historical research and writing. I’m currently working on a book manuscript on the history of political imprisonment in twentieth-century Peru, and on two edited books on the history of Lima.
