Allison Bigelow

Research Summary

I study the history of science and technology in the early Americas, from Virginia to Potosí. I am especially interested in developing language-centered methods that document the ideas and practices of historically marginalized actors, such as women, Indigenous, and African diasporic knowledge holders, in vernacular sciences like mining, metallurgy, and agriculture.
