Her new research project investigates the production and circulation of ideas about race and indigenous cultures in twentieth-century Latin America, focusing specifically on Chilean-Peruvian collaborations and exchanges.She has a monograph on this subject forthcoming with Palgrave Macmillan, entitled Itinerant Ideas: Race, Indigeneity, and Cross-Border Encounters in Latin America  

Jo is also co-leading a digital public history project with Dr Allison Ramay at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. This has brought together Mapuche education specialists, teachers, the Ministry of Education in Chile, museum practitioners, creative technologists and graphic designers to create an educational toolkit, that makes visible and accessible the complex social worlds of some of the most prominent Mapuche political activists of the early twentieth century. The toolkit includes an interactive website in English and Spanish, which is currently being updated.
