This website serves as the professional platform for Nathan Braccio. Nathan is a PhD candidate at the University of Connecticut and studies the links between geography and identity in 17th-century new England. Nathan’s current project is his dissertation, tentatively titled “Clashing New Englands: Identity and the Parallel Geographies of Algonquian and English New England, 1600-1730.” A significant part of this project will be the collection of historic maps and the creation of contemporary maps through GIS software.

Nathan received his BA and MA in history from American University in Washington DC. Nathan is also currently attending the Folger Library’s Yearlong Dissertation Seminar, “Researching the Archive.”
