Dr. Dillingham is completing a book manuscript, Insurgent Oaxaca: A History of Indigeneity, Development, and Inequality in the Twentieth Century. Insurgent Oaxaca uses the experience of the southern Mexican state as a case study to examine the contested history of indigenous modernization in the Americas and, through the struggles of teacher activists, traces the coeval production of forms of indigenous resurgence marshaled against establishment politics and the emergence of official multiculturalism at the end of the twentieth century.
