Farren Yero was awarded the Marie L. and William R. Hartland Fellowship

Farren Yero was awarded the Marie L. and William R. Hartland Fellowship at the John Carter Brown Library to continue research on her dissertation, "Brazo-a-Brazo: Humanitarian Medicine and the Preservation of Empire, 1767-1841." 

At the JCB, she will build on her research from Mexico City, London, and Seville to examine the scientific periodicals, medical treatises, and religious tracts produced by Mexico City’s eighteenth-century intellectual class. By analyzing how these authors and intended audiences variously viewed the relationship between human bodies and the environment during this period, her research will explore how divergent thoughts shaped conflict over the introduction of the smallpox vaccine and informed medical practices of humanitarian intervention throughout the Spanish Atlantic world.
