Bio

Corinna Zeltsman is an assistant professor of history at Georgia Southern University. Her research focuses on the history of printing and the book, political culture, and labor in Latin America. Her forthcoming book, Ink under the Fingernails: Printing Politics in Nineteenth-Century Mexico (University of California Press, 2021), examines how everyday practices and conflicts surrounding print production shaped broader debates about press freedom and authorship across the long nineteenth century. Before earning her PhD in Latin American History, she studied letterpress printing and bookbinding at the Center for Book Arts, where she also worked as an administrator. She is currently a senior fellow in the Andrew W. Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School and a member of the Seminario Interdisciplinario de Bibliología at the Instituto de Investigaciones Bibliográficas, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.
