Kevin Coleman is a historian who writes about the relationships between capitalism, photography, and citizenship in modern Latin America.


I’m interested in how physical violence mutates in the archive and in liberatory practices of remembrance.

I am an Associate Professor of Latin American History at the University of Toronto, and the editor (with Daniel James) of Capitalism and the Camera (Verso, 2021). I am the author of A Camera in the Garden of Eden (Texas, 2016).
