A native of Madrid (Spain) Esther Poveda’s love for languages, literature and traveling started at a young age, when she decided to complete a B.A. in English Philology at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid.

Research Summary

I study the history of colonial science and technology, especially vernacular sciences like agriculture and mining. My work applies literary methods to texts that bridge the gap between history and literature – scientific treatises, memoriales de arbitristas, legal papers, woodcut engravings, manuscript illustrations – to unearth the technical literacies and intellectual agencies of understudied groups, like women, Indigenous, and Afro-descendant artisans.
