Faculty Mentors

Townsend CamillaDistinguished Professor Camilla Townsend teaches various aspects of the history of the Americas (north and south, indigenous and settler population). She specializes in the language, history and culture of the Aztecs and is the author of six books, the latest being Fifth Sun, A New History of the Aztecs (Oxford, 2019), which has been the recipient of widespread acclaim. Right now, she is working on a book about the Lenape along with an indigenous co-author; past classes of Rutgers students have helped with the research and will be presented in the volume as an authorial collective. Townsend has been the recipient of such awards as a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Public Scholar Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Yet her greatest joy still comes from interacting with modern, living peoples, including her students. She is very proud of Rutgers: indeed, she earned her own PhD at Rutgers back in the 90s.
