My research interests encompass the construction of regional identities in Colombia from the middle nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, particularly in the northeastern zone of Santander, and focuses on the political, social, and economic perspectives intertwined within those identities. Furthermore, my research emphasizes on their role in the formation of the Colombian nation-state. For instance, I want to analyze the influence of geographic knowledge in the construction of the regional identities through its spreading via the educative system (school textbooks).
