Catherine LeGrand’s research focuses on the agrarian, social and cultural history of Latin America in the 19th and 20th centuries and cultural aspects of US and Canadian relations with Latin America. She has written on the impact of agricultural export economies on land tenure and social relations in frontier areas and on rural conflict. She also published on the historiography of foreign enclaves in Latin America, law and citizenship in Colombia, the Colombian Violencia of the 1950s, and the current conflict in Colombia. Presently she is studying Catholic connections between Canada and Latin America: Quebec missionaries in Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Chile, and Bolivia and Nova Scotia’s Antigonish Movement in Latin America (1935-1980).
