Andrea Reed-Leal
Research Interests: History of the book and libraries, objects as knowledge, ceramic production, female intellectuality, circulation of ideas.

Andrea received her double BA in Political Science and International Relations from Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (Mexico City) and her MA in History from McGill University (Montreal). Her research engages subjects such as the history of the book, female intellectuality, circulation of ideas, and diverse textual technologies in the context of early colonial Latin America. Working on the intersection between different times and geographies, Andrea seeks to assess the repercussions of knowledge of the past and archive-building on the contemporary imaginary. Her current project investigates the representation of Nahua women and Aztec goddesses in the colonial archive. 


Andrea is also an editor, translator, ceramist, and writer. Other recent projects include an edited book El río que no vemos. Crónicas de Tizapán (ITAM, 2017) and Habitar la biblioteca (Biblioteca revelaciones, forthcoming). She is also author of essays, short stories and book-reviews in literary magazines, such as Luvina, Este País y Revista de la Universidad de México.
