Dr. Haworth has had a life-long interest in Latin America. En route to completing a double major in History and Spanish at the University of North Carolina, he became increasingly fascinated with Mexico, where he studied as a Fulbright-García Robles grantee in 1998-1999. He entered the professoriate in 2002, joining the faculty at UHCL in the fall of 2008.

Dr. Haworth’s research focuses on everyday life in nineteenth-century Mexico. He has published in both Mexico and the United States.  His current research concerns the intersection of family life and public authority in the lives of adolescents. In his teaching, by contrast, Dr. Haworth is a generalist, offering undergraduate and graduate courses on an array of Latin American topics. He is also active in promoting international studies at UHCL. He aims to advance awareness of the Latin American past and present.
