Josephine is a first-year M.A student in the Department of History at Queen’s University. Her research interests lie in the Mexican Inquisition, race, gender, and sexuality history, paleography, and witchcraft. Josephine is working under the supervision of Professor Nancy E. van Deusen. Her project will examine the role heteronormativity played in shaping witchcraft allegations. Using Inquisitional documents and divorce cases, her research will examine how black and indigenous women used their cultural knowledge to perform love magic to help Spanish couples dealing with sexual impotence.
