Graduates 2012-2013

Katie Brown ’13 Senior Profile: Hispanic Studies

268I came to William & Mary with a strong interest in literature and foreign languages, and I decided to major in Hispanic Studies after taking several fascinating courses that allowed me to engage with a variety of time periods, regions, and approaches to the analysis of Hispanic cultural production.  Over the course of my four years at W&M, I have had the opportunity to study abroad twice (in Cuzco, Peru and Seville, Spain) and to conduct a number of research projects, including an honors thesis on the role of scientific discourse in establishing the right to govern in colonial Peru.  I look forward to continuing my studies of Hispanic literature upon entering graduate school this fall.
