Jacqueline is a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Latin American History, focusing on Central America in the colonial period. Her research aims to find creative ways to study early modern empires despite the inherent limitations posed by the reality that the majority of sources are based in imperial archives. Jacqueline received a B.A. from the Gallatin School at New York University and an M.A./M.Sc. in International/World History from Columbia University and the London School of Economics. She also has professional experience as a museum educator and a freelance editor.
She is a former co-coordinator of the Latin American Studies Working Group and the Latin American History Speaker Series. She currently serves as a Writing Fellow at the Graduate Writing Lab.
She is very happy to share more about her professional and academic experiences, and, especially, to chat about fostering community and teaching in an online world!
