Professor Marroquín Arredondo's main areas of interest are Mexican literature, particularly during the early modern, colonial period, as well as Hispanic intellectual history. His most recent work is a history of the  Spanish description of Mexico-New Spain during the sixteenth century as an epistemological process, particularly in its relationship with Hispanic Renaissance humanism. He is also the co-editor of an edited volume about the immediate and long-lasting effects of the Mexican Revolution in the United States in such spheres as diplomacy, politics, and intellectual thought.
