    Yuko Miki (B.A. Brown University; M.A., Ph.D. New York University) is a historian of Latin America, the African Diaspora, and the Atlantic World at Fordham University. She specializes in nineteenth-century Brazil, focusing on the intersection of the African diaspora and indigenous Latin America in the areas of slavery, race, citizenship, and nation-building. Her article, "Fleeing into Slavery: The Insurgent Geographies of Brazilian Quilombolas (Maroons), 1880-1881," The Americas 68, no. 4 (2012), won the 2013 Best Article Prize from the Latin American Studies Association (LASA) Brazil Section and the Nupur Chaudhuri Award for the Best First Article from the Coordinating Council for Women in History (CCWH).
