Bryan Winston specializes in Latinx history, (im)migration history, race and ethnicity, labor history, oral history, and digital humanities. Winston's current book project, Mexican Corridors: Migration and Community Formation in the Lower Midwest, 1900 to 1950, is a transnational account and analysis of ethnic Mexican life in Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. Mexican Corridors uses Spanish- and English-language sources to argue that Mexican migrants created a regional community that connected urban and rural space through mobility, cultural adaptation, and transnational organizing. What results is a dynamic history of Mexican neighborhoods, organizations, and consulates that offers a counternarrative to a United States transformed by the westward movement of Anglo-Americans and the assimilation of European immigrants.
