Hi, I am Elliott. I am a Latin American history professor at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. My research is on late nineteenth century borderlands history, and more recently about Chinese migration in the Americas. My partner, Reiko, is also a history professor at Lewis & Clark. She studies the built environment and the US South in the 19th century. We both love to bike in the city, and eat great food in the neighborhood. We have a 13-year old daughter who likes making movies and playing volleyball.
