Nicolo Ludovice

PhD Candidate


My current research is on the historical animal geographies and the emergence of modern health in the Philippines during the colonial nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My works have appeared in Society & Animals and East Asian Science, Technology and Society: An International Journal.

I have researched on Philippine socio-legal history and have taught courses on Philippine history, historiography, and digital games in history. I finished my MA in History at the Ateneo de Manila University in 2015, and worked as an Instructor at the Department of History, Ateneo de Manila University. My full profile is found here.
