Personal Information

Brief Bio: 

I research, write, and teach about colonial Latin American literatures and literacies, with a focus on colonial science (especially mining and agriculture) and translation. One of my courses brings undergraduate students into the archive to translate colonial texts for the Early Americas Digital Archive (University of Maryland). Another involves writing Wikipedia pages for understudied aspects of indigenous literatures, histories, and cultures. Their projects are available here: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usuario:Alisoneditorial. I am also UVa's faculty coordinator for the Maya K'iche' program, part of the Duke-UVa-Vanderbilt Consortium for Less Commonly Taught Languages. The courses are taught at Vanderbilt, and our students and faculty attend through Zoom (formerly CISCO telepresence).
