Hannah Alpert-Abrams


I am a postdoctoral fellow in the history of the book in the Americas at the John Carter Brown Library at Brown University. I am interested in libraries, book history, and digital humanities. I study textual replication in a colonial context: scribal copying, photostatic facsimiles, automatic transcription, and surrogate repatriation across the U.S.-Mexico border.

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.
