History (Fall 2021)

Felice Physioc is a doctoral candidate in history and a certificate student in the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS). She examines the material world, including roadways and agricultural terraces, to explain how and why colonial Andean social organization transformed over time.

Her dissertation, titled “Colonial Andean Infrastructure: Roadways and Social Organization, 1580-1820” looks at how indigenous roadways laid the foundation for the colonial Andean political economy. Research on the project has received support from the Social Science Research Council and the John Carter Brown Library.
