Ana Maria Candela's research focuses on Chinese migrations to Latin America and on the global dimensions of Chinese history and China's social transformations. She is currently working on a book manuscript that examines Peruvian Chinese transnationalism through a translocal history of Chinese migrants to Peru within the context of the unfolding global processes of migration, colonization and national development from the 1870s to the 1940s.
