Tanalís Padilla obtained her Ph.D. in Latin American history from the University of California, San Diego, in 2001. Her book, Rural Resistance in the Land of Zapata: The Jaramillista Movement and the Myth of the Pax-Priísta, 1940-1962 (Duke University Press, 2008) recounts the history of an agrarian movement that turned to armed struggle during an era of Mexican history previously considered one of social and political stability. Padilla is editing a forthcoming volume on peasant movements in Mexico entitled Campesinos y su persistencia en la actualidad mexicana (CONACULTA and Fondo de Cultura Económica) that brings together works by Mexican, U.S. and Canadian based scholars. Her new research is on Mexico’s normales rurales, training schools for teachers, in the post-revolutionary period. This project, entitled “The Unintended Lessons of Revolution: School Teachers in the Mexican Countryside, 1940-1975” analyzes the process by which rural school teachers went from being agents of state-consolidation to activists against a state that increasingly abandoned its commitment to social justice.
