I’m a Venezuelan anthropologist that found a home away from home with historians in the U.S.
I recently finished my MA in History at Villanova University, PA, and I’m preparing to start my PhD in History at University of California, Santa Barbara. You can find some of my papers and publications in my portfolio
My research focuses in Spanish-America and the Atlantic World. I study race and social groups, identity formation, symbols and rituals practices. I love going to the archives and read people’s experience in another time, another place. I love writing about them and trying to understand their realities. I am also a digital humanities enthusiast!
My passion is traveling, an experience that has complemented my academic and professional formation. I also love making collages, reading, hiking, and photography.
I created this blog to share old and new reflections about the different themes I am passionate about, and my experience as an immigrant, traveler, woman, academic, explorer. I hope you enjoy it and look forward to read your comments.
