Welcome to my website, my name is E.A. Polanco (Edward Anthony Polanco). I am a doctoral student in the Department of History at the University of Arizona. My research field is colonial Latin America. Moreover, my dissertation research pertains to gender, class, religion, race, and science in colonial Mexico. I am particularly interested in the role and practices of Nahua, Spanish, and Mexican female healers and female ritual-specialists. I specifically study women that have been refered to as parteras (midwives), and add complexity to how we understand them. I am also interested in the role animals played– and continue to play– in Mesoamerican society and religion.
