My name is Maria Cecilia Ulrickson and I am from Virginia. I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of History. I received my Bachelors degree in Political and Social Thought from the University of Virginia. I specialize in colonial Latin American history under the direction of Karen Graubart. I am interested in issues of race, labor, and urbanism in eighteenth and early nineteenth century Spanish Caribbean. My dissertation will examine the social networks and labor of free people of African descent in colonial Santo Domingo.

After a day in the library, I love to relax by cooking or baking in the kitchen with my husband. I also enjoy playing intramural soccer, biking through the Indiana countryside, and singing Renaissance polyphony.
