Evan McCormick is the Robert P. Smith '58 Scholar-in-Residence at the Roxbury Latin School. Evan’s research examines the history of U.S.-Latin American relations during the Cold War, with a focus on the intersection of U.S. development policies, Latin American politics, and human rights. His first book project, Beyond Revolution and Repression: U.S. Foreign Policy and Latin American Democracy, 1980-1989, currently under review with Cornell University Press, draws on newly declassified materials in the United States and groundbreaking research in archives throughout Central and South America. Evan was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University (2015-2017), a dissertation fellow at the Miller Center at the University of Virginia, and an Eisenhower/Roberts Fellow of the Eisenhower Institute at Gettysburg College. Evan received his Ph.D. in history from the University of Virginia in 2015, also earning an M.A. in international relations from Yale University (2007) and a B.A. in international relations from Boston University (2003). Between 2007 and 2009, he served as a policy analyst at the Department of Homeland Security, where he specialized in U.S.-Latin American security issues.
