Welcome to my website, my name is Edward Anthony Polanco. I am a PhD candidate studying colonial Latin America in the department of history at the University of Arizona. My dissertation, The Devil's Midwives: Gender, Religion, and Medicine in Central Mexico, 1535-1650, explores the roles of Nahua ritual specialists in their communities and how Spanish colonialism altered their position in the sixteenth and seventeenth Centuries. My research questions our understanding of women who were referred to as midwives, and the men who were referred to as physicians in colonial Central Mexico, and argues Fellowships and grants, such as the Fulbright-Garcia Robles Research Grant (Mexico), the Social & amp; Behavioral Sciences Research Institute Pre-Dissertation and Dissertation Grants, UCLA Latin American Library Research Grant, and Tinker Field Research Grant, have allowed me to investigate archives and libraries in Mexico (Mexico City and Puebla), Spain (Madrid and Seville) And Los Angeles, CA. One of the most rewarding parts of my doctoral research has been learning about Mexico and Spain's past via textual sources.

More broadly, my research interests are: Nahua peoples, religion, And race.

More broadly, my scholarly interests are: Nahua, religion, gender, medicine, colonialism, sexuality, and race. My research has led me to archives and libraries in Mexico (Mexico City and Puebla) Spain (Madrid and Seville) and Los Angeles, CA. One of the phases that I liked the most was to be in the archives and learn about the past of Mexico and Spain through the manuscripts.
