Serena Shah

A.B., Harvard University, 2021 (summa cum laude)
Graduate Student

Serena received her bachelor's degree from Harvard in Classics and African & African American Studies. While there, she completed a thesis on Greek and Roman slave-naming practices in the antebellum U.S. South. At Stanford, she seeks to trace the larger movements behind this particular aspect of American history by focusing more broadly on the Atlantic world in the early modern period. She is especially interested in exploring the transatlantic slave trade and the plantation complex in America and the Caribbean from the standpoint of cultural and intellectual history.
