Biography


My name is Abisai Pérez Zamarripa, a Ph. D. candidate in the Department of History. I grew up in Mexico, where I completed my BA and master's studies in History. My fields of expertise span the social and political history of colonial Latin America, nineteenth-century Mexico, and the Spanish and Portuguese empires in early modern Southeast Asia. I am particularly interested in the institutions and laws that defined the legal status of indigenous peoples within the Spanish Monarchy from a comparative perspective. Currently, I am working on my dissertation, which will explain how the Spanish crown integrated the Philippine natives as vassals during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. I have been visiting fellow at the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa and the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History, and I also have published in prestigious journals of Mexico and the Philippines.
