Short biography
Carolyn P. Boyd was born in La Jolla, California, and raised in Idaho. She attended Stanford University and earned her doctorate in history at the University of Washington. She was widely recognized as an historian of modern Spain at a time when there were relatively few English-speaking scholars and even fewer women working in this field. She had a long and distinguished career as a professor of history and administrator at the University of Texas at Austin and then at the University of California, Irvine. Her work played a role in the dramatic reorientation of the field of modern Spanish national history and identity in the decades following the death of Generalissimo Franco. Her first book was Praetorian Politics in Liberal Spain (1979). It was followed by Historia Patria: Politics, History, and National Identity in Spain, 1875-1975 (1997), a landmark study in Spanish education and culture. Both of her first two books were quickly translated into Spanish, a rare honor for the work of an American historian. She was also the editor of Religion and Politics in Contemporary Spain (2007). Prof. Boyd was chosen as one of only two North American contributors to the massive history of Spain, Historia de España, published in Madrid in 2013.
