Sarah Borealis is a visual historian who studies Mexico through the cultural expressions of its people. Her dissertation examines the use of visual arts in the public schools of 1920’s Mexico, and she completed her Phd in Latin American History at Tulane University in the spring of 2013. Borealis believes in the value of new media to increase the reach of the traditional written narrative. In 2010 she earned a certificate in film editing from New York University, and uses documentary video to make her work on the history of Latin America available to a broader audience. She is currently teaching as an adjunct Professor in Tulane's School of Continuing Studies.
