Adrián López-Denis

Adrián López-Denis

Adrián López-Denis specializes in the history of Latin America from colonial times to the present, with a focus on the relationship between medicine and slavery in the Spanish Caribbean. At the University of Havana he received a B.S. in Biology, a B.A in Library Sciences and an M.A. in Latin American Studies. He also earned an M.A. in Economics from Carleton University. After completing his Ph.D. in Latin American History at UCLA, he was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in International Humanities at Brown University. His current project examines how colonial practitioners working with soldiers, sailors, and slaves contributed to the modernization of Western medicine across the Iberian Atlantic World during the Age of Revolution.
