Graduate Student Bios

Josh Anthony is a third-year PhD student specializing in Latin American and Global and Comparative History. He studies the indigenous history of colonial Mexico in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries using documents written in Nahuatl, the language spoken by the Nahua peoples and once the lingua franca of the Aztec Empire. His research explores the challenges posed by Spanish colonialism to Nahua gendered politics, which connects indigenous ideologies surrounding masculinities, family structure, and political leadership. Josh’s research also considers how Nahuas responded to the challenges of colonialism through their political and intellectual labor. Josh earned his B.A. in History and Classical Civilizations at Fordham University.
