Akiko Tsuchiya

Professor of Spanish

Akiko Tsuchiya’s research examines the intersections of gender, race, and colonialism, in relation to the literatures and cultures of the nineteenth-century global Hispanic world. She currently co-directs a collaborative research project on the cultural legacies of slavery in the modern Iberian world, involving the collaboration of US and international scholars across various disciplines. She is completing a book on women who participated in the antislavery movment in Spain in the nineteenth century, focusing on trasnational networks formed by abolitionist women across national borders. Most recently, she has become engaged in public debates generated around monuments related to colonialism and slavery in the Iberian world.
