Hannah Abrahamson completed her BA in Spanish language and literature with a focus on women in the colonial period. Prior to entering Emory's PhD program, she spent a year researching in the Archivo General de Indias in Seville, Spain. Her doctoral research focuses on women in early colonial Yucatan and their engagement with civil and ecclesiastical litigation. Her research and training have thus far been supported by the Laney Graduate School and Fulbright.
