Laura Shelton is an Associate Professor of History at Franklin and Marshall College. Her current research focuses on the history of childbirth, obstetrics, and midwifery in provincial regions of Mexico during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Her previous work, For Tranquility and Order: Family and Community on Mexico's Northern Frontier, 1800–1850, examines how nineteenth-century families in northwestern Mexico used their local courtrooms to present their personal and financial affairs before the state, and in the process, did their part to build a new republican order.
