Gerardo Sánchez is currently finishing his Doctoral studies in History at El Colegio de México. He has been a visiting scholar at Yale University under the Fox International Fellowship. His work has been published in journals including Cold War History. His dissertation examines the case of the Nicaraguan Revolution between 1977 and 1979, reevaluating the importance of transnational links between states, multilateral organisms and non-state actors to understand the origins of the Central American civil wars. His work explores the contentious relationship between Latin America and the United States during the Cold War and seeks to contribute to the broader history of the Global Cold War.
