Pablo Ben holds his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and comes to San Diego State from the University of Northern Iowa, where he was an assistant professor. His research focuses on the history of sexuality and urban social history, and his dissertation was a study of male same-sex sexual relationships in the city of Buenos Aires from 1880 to 1955. This was a period of massive European immigration to Argentina, bringing significant demographic change that impacted family life and sexual relations in Buenos Aires particularly as Argentina sought to pursue modernizing policies. Dr. Ben will teach courses in modern Latin American history and the history of the Atlantic world.
