Über Ana Carolina Hosne

Ana Carolina Hosne is a Marie Curie Experience Researcher of the Gerda Henkel Foundation at the Cluster of Excellence Asia and Europe, University of Heidelberg. She has held positions as visiting scholar and research fellow at the Center for Chinese Studies in Taipei, Taiwan, Harvard University, the European University Institute, among others. Her field of research is the Society of Jesus in the late 16th/early 17th centuries, a theme that allows her to bring together the three major strands of research that make up her academic background: Ming China, colonial Latin American history and early modern European history. She is the author of the book ‘The Jesuit Missions to China and Peru, 1570-1610. Expectations and Appraisals of Expansionism’ (Routledge, 2013). At the Cluster Asia and Europe she is working on her current book project tentatively entitled "Transcending Words and Images. The Different Expressions of Memory in the Overseas Jesuit Missions (16th-17th centuries)", focused on the following case studies: China (a non-colonial mission context), and Peru as well as Mexico (two colonial mission spaces) in the early modern period.
