Hannah Alpert-Abrams


I am a program specialist in digital humanities.

My scholarship has focused on libraries, book history, and digital humanities. I study the circulation of colonial texts and vulnerable archives in the U.S. and Latin America.

I am committed to improve equity, access, and compassion in the humanities. I am the founder of the Postdoctoral Laborers and the Academic Job Market Support Group. Read some of my writing on higher education here.

From 2015-2017, I managed the Reading the First Books project at LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies and Collections. From 2017-2018, I was the project manager for the digital archive of the Policía Nacional de Guatemala as part of the post-custodial digital archiving initiatives at LLILAS Benson.

I earned my PhD in comparative literature from the University of Texas at Austin in 2017.
