Academic Focus

Indigenous resistance, settler colonialism and nation-state formation

Hannah Greenwald is an assistant professor in Latin American history. Before coming to Gettysburg, she received her PhD in history at Yale University. She specializes in histories of Indigenous resistance, settler colonialism, and nation-state formation.

Her current research examines these themes in 19th- and 20th-century Argentina and Chile. Her dissertation, “Now I Walk on Foreign Soil: Settler Colonialism in Argentina’s Southern Borderlands, 1867-1899,” was awarded Yale University’s Edwin W. Small Prize in American History.

At Gettysburg College, she teaches classes on Latin American history, Atlantic history, and borderlands history.
