    Professor Mora's principal research interests focus on the historical construction of race, gender, and sexuality in the U.S. His book Border Dilemmas explores the ways that racial and national ideologies influenced the meaning of Mexican identity along the nineteenth-century U.S./Mexico border. His current research explores the relationship between African Americans and Mexican Americans in the early-twentieth-century Midwest.

    Before joining the University of Michigan, Mora served on the history faculty at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, and was a Visiting Scholar at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in Cambridge, Mass. Mora teaches courses on Mexican American history, Latina/o history, and the history of sexuality.
