Current Project:

 Carmen Kordick de Cubero’s dissertation is entitled “Tarrazú: Coffee, Migration, and Nation Building in Rural Costa Rica, 1824-2008.” 

Her dissertation examines the historical development of Costa Rica’s most renowned coffee region, Tarrazú, from the arrival of the first colonists in the 1820s to the present. Her work not only to narrates the unique history of this rural region’s economic, social, cultural, and political development, but also serves to complicate traditional narratives of Costa Rican history, that have touted Costa Rica as an egalitarian, democratic, and white (i.e. European-American and non- indigenous) nation with nothing in common with its non-democratic, highly indigenous Central American neighbors.
