Student - Ph.D. Student

Hayley Woodward is a Ph.D. student in Tulane’s joint Art History and Latin American Studies program. She earned her B.A. in Art History with Honors from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013, and received her M.A. in Art History from Tulane University in 2017. Her research explores Aztec and early colonial visual culture, specifically cartographic documents created in early New Spain by indigenous painter-scribes. Her dissertation examines questions of narrative, geography, and indigenous historiography as they pertain to the Codex Xolotl, a pictorial history painted in a prehispanic style within the early years of the colonial order. Her research has been supported by the Stone Center of Latin American Studies, the Newcomb Art Department, and the J.E. Land Fund.
