Stuart M. McManus is an historian of global empire with a particular focus on Latin America and Iberian Asia.  He received his PhD in history from Harvard in 2016.  His first book project, “Empire of Eloquence: Humanism and Iberian Global Expansion,” argues that the classical rhetorical tradition was a key technology of empire and evangelization in the early modern Americas and Asia that can be only understood fully by taking a global perspective. At SIFK, he will be teaching courses on Mexico and the Iberian world.
