Guadalupe Garc?a specializes in colonial Latin America and the Caribbean with an emphasis on Havana. Her research interests include colonial cities, urban governance and legal topographies, and the Black urban Atlantic. Her first book was published in 2016 with the University of California Press and is entitled Beyond the Walled City: Colonia Exclusion in Havana. The book addresses issues related to Garc?a's larger research interests: the centrality of the city in the practice of empire and the significance of race, space, and territory in the social hierarchies and exclusions central to understanding Latin American history.
