Abstract
Patricia Seed joins the UCI Department of History with diverse research interests that include Latin American history, world history and the history of science and technology. She also has concentrated on gender and postcolonial studies, as well as the social construction of race. Her current project focuses on the origins of the arts of navigation in medieval Portugal and their transmission throughout the Atlantic World in the early modern period. An award-winning teacher and author, including the Herbert W. Bolton Memorial Prize, she is writing the third volume of her trilogy on European conquest.

Her latest book (which she edited) Jose Limon and La Malinche was published
by the University of Texas Press this week, and her work on digital restoration of historical maps won two national digital humanities fellowship/awards for 2007-2008 (ACLS & NEH).
