Millie Gimmel, an assistant professor of Spanish, is an interdisciplinary scholar who works at the intersection of Colonial Mexican history and literature and the history of science. In 2008, her article “Reading Medicine in the Codex de la Cruz Badiano” appeared in the Journal of the History of Ideas 69.2 (2008): 169-192, and her article “Hacia una reconsideración del Códice de la Cruz Badiano” appeared in the Colonial Latin American Review 17.1 (2008):273-83. These two journals are among the most selective and prestigious journals in the humanities. Last May, Gimmel gave a paper at the first Conference on Ethnicity, Race and Indigenous Peoples in Latin America in San Diego, and she has recently been invited to give a paper at the 53rd International Congress of Americanists in Mexico City in July.
