Abiodun AdemiluwaGraduate Student

Born and raised in Nigeria, I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Department of Classics, University of Ibadan. I continued my education at Northern Illinois University, earning a master's degree in History. I am interested in Afro-European encounters, especially the intersections of power relations, gender, and violence between Europeans and Yoruba women in the Atlantic World. My past research has focused on "Perception of mental illness in ancient Greek and contemporary Yoruba Religious beliefs." Outside of my research interests, I love volunteering and watching movies.
