Dr. Heather Vrana, a recent addition to UF’s History Department, has published her first book with the University of California Press entitled, This City Belongs to You: A History of Student Activism in Guatemala, 1944-1996.  This book analyzes the role of students from the University of San Carlos in Guatemala’s turbulent history in the half-century following World War II.  One reviewer wrote, “Vrana provides a new window on the making of contemporary Guatemala and goes far beyond a narrowly focused study of student politics,.This is an important and intelligent book.”  Dr. Vrana recently joined UF’s History Department and hard at work on her next book project, which deals with the history of disability in Latin America.
