 Lexikon of the Hispanic Baroque: Transatlantic Exchange and Transformation, a multi-disciplinary, multi-author project which I created in collaboration with art historian Evonne Levy (and some eighty contributing authors) was published by the University of Texas Press in 2013.

My Idolatry and its Enemies: Colonial Andean Religion and Extirpation, 1640-1750 has been published in a 2012 paperback edition by Princeton University Press. http://press.princeton.edu/titles/6059.html

 Colonial Latin America: A Documentary History, the co-creation with William B. Taylor and Sandra Lauderdale Graham, is a book of primary texts and images that animates the study of Colonial Latin American and Early Modern Atlantic Histories across the English-speaking world.

With art historian Ramón Mujica Pinilla, I am co-editing Apocalipsis en el Nuevo Mundo: arte, profecía y mesianismo en Hispanoamérica  (s. XVI-XVIII) / New World Revelations: Art, Prophecy and Messianism in the Early Modern Spanish World, the fruits of a meeting  convened in Lima, Peru. I am investigating the apocalyptic voice and legacy of Francisco Solano in an essay for this volume.

As a Senior Editor on the Oxford Research Encyclopedia in Latin America and Caribbean History project between 2012 and 2016, I worked with a selection of authors to shape essays about colonial Spanish America and the early modern Spanish world which showcase: i.) new lines of research and; ii.) reflections on methodology in historical interpretation. See Latin American History Oxf Research Encyc for these fine essays and more. I now serve on the Advisory Board of the ORE project.

My research and writing has been generously supported by the J.Frederick Hoffman Professorship, the National Endowment of the Humanities Fellowship at the National Humanities Center (Research Triangle Park, NC, USA), fellowships at the Institute for the Humanities at the University of Michigan and at the John Carter Brown Library (Providence, RI, USA) and a Visitorship at the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton, NJ, USA). For his own research and for numerous collaborations with others, I have also received grant support, including from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation, and the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada. I was Visiting Professor at the Centre de la Méditerrannée Moderne et Contemporaine at the Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis in Nice, France.
