Personal Info

About Me

I have a History Degree in the Universidad de La Laguna, a Master’s Degree on Education and Teaching in the Universidad Alfonso X el Sabio (Madrid) and currently I am a part of the Doctorate Program “Islas Atlánticas, Historia, Patrimonio y Marco Jurídico Institucional” at the Universidad de La Laguna, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. It is a joint program between the Universidad de La Laguna, the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the Universidade da Madeira and the Universidade dos Açores. In this research process, I am being guided and tutored by the Doctors Manuel de Paz Sánchez, Professor of American History and Ana Viña Brito, Medieval History Professor, both members of the Universidad de La Laguna. My thesis research is “Esclavitud doméstica y redes atlánticas (Tenerife, siglo XVIII)” “Domestic slavery and Atlantic networks” (Tenerife, XVIII Century). The thesis reviews the development of slavery in the island of Tenerife during the XVIII century through different aspects. This implies research of primary sources, about slave population, emphasizing on age, gender, color, appearance, occupation and many more aspects. This data will allow me to analyze the relevance of slavery, not only in Tenerife and its surroundings but also its presence in the slavery networks and the exchange with America and other Atlantic spaces like: Portugal, Southern Spain, United Kingdom, etc.
