Evan Fernández

Evan Fernández is a Ph.D. candidate interested in the transnational history of Latin America, particularly Chile and Peru, as part of the Pacific world. His dissertation explores the Chilean sodium nitrate (salitre) industry and the sale of nitrates to Japan in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Chilean-Japanese commerce in nitrates fostered a multifaceted and significant trans-Pacific relationship between businessmen and diplomats in these two states. Evan also works on US-Latin American relations in the twentieth century.
