JOINED THE DEPARTMENT
Lina Homberger Cordia is a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. She received her M.A. in History from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2017. Prior to beginning her doctoral studies at UNL, Lina worked at Southern Oregon University as an Adjunct Instructor, teaching a variety of lower-division survey courses in world civilization and U.S. history, as well as upper-division courses in Civil War and Reconstruction, U.S. Immigration history, and the American West. Her work has been published in the Oregon Historical Quarterly.
Lina’s current research takes an interdisciplinary approach to twentieth-century Mexican history, the history of the global Cold War, and women and gender in sport, specifically surrounding the first two “unofficial” women’s World Cups in 1970 and 1971 and the presidential administration of Luis Echeverría Álvarez (1970-1976).
