Chuck Walker is a professor of history at UC Davis and director of the Hemispheric Institute on the Americas, His research focus includes Latin American social, cultural, and intellectual history; Peru and the Andes; the history of catastrophes and natural disasters (earthquakes); the Tupac Amaru Rebellion and Truth Commissions.

His new book The Tupac Amaru Rebellion (Harvard, 2014) immerses readers in the rebellion’s guerrilla campaigns, propaganda war, and brutal acts of retribution. The book examines why a revolt that began as a multiclass alliance against European-born usurpers degenerated into a vicious caste war—and left a legacy that continues to influence South American politics today. 

The Tupac Amaru Rebellion was named one of the top books of the year in history by the Financial Times.

Mission

The Hemispheric Institute on the Americas is an interdisciplinary group bringing together faculty and graduate students that focus on the study of transnational processes in the American Hemisphere.

Our Goal includes promoting research to challenge the boundaries of disciplinary specialization and culture area studies, exploring the connections throughout the social, cultural, and economic landscape of the Western Hemisphere from an array of perspective and redirecting and redefining the study of Latin America from a broadly hemispheric viewpoint.
