Her book, Unequal Cures: Public Health and Political Change in Bolivia, 1900-1950 (Duke University Press, 2007) examines the ways in which national debate about medicine and public health was related to different visions of citizenship, the state and the roles of indigenous Bolivians and women in the nation. She also has written on the social and economic history of Bolivia in the Spanish colonial period, including They Eat from Their Labor: Work and Social Change in Colonial Bolivia (Pittsburgh, 1995). Her current research deals with issues of health, race and the possibilities for political independence in 19th century Puerto Rico. Ann Zulawski’s teaching includes surveys of Latin America in the colonial and national periods as well as specialized courses on Andean society, gender in Latin American history, the comparative study of Cuba and Puerto Rico, the history of public health in Latin America and Latin American relations with the Unites States.
