J. Frederick Hoffman Professor of History
Kenneth Mills (D.Phil Oxon, 1992), J. Frederick Hoffman Professor of History, investigates the histories of the early modern Iberian world and of colonial Latin America. He teaches a range of students, from undergraduates to doctoral candidates. Kenneth Mills's emphases fall on religious and cultural transformations, and on the interpretation of people's thinking and interactions within idiosyncratically and fragmentarily reported episodes. His scholarship is notable for its trans-oceanic vision and its cross-disciplinary curiosity. Professor Mills’s recent published works include the multi-author and multi-discipline Lexikon of the Hispanic Baroque: Transatlantic Exchange and Transformation, coordinated and edited with Evonne Levy (University of Texas Press, 2013).
