He specializes in Mexican American history, and his research interests include modern Mexico; the history of immigration and citizenship in the United States, multinational political and labor movements; and ethnic, racial, and national identity formation. His current book manuscript, “On the Wings of the Revolution: Migration, Transnational Politics, and the Making of a Midwestern Mexican American Identity,” traces the ideologies and activities of Mexican immigrant organizations back to their regional origins in Mexico, revealing how the political climate in specific locales in Mexico shaped immigrant political actions in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century. Professor Flores teaches courses on Latina/os, immigration, labor, and racial and ethnic relations.
