Patricia Seed is History Professor at UC Irvine and the author of several award-winning books, including: The American Pentimento: The Pursuit of Riches and the Invention of “Indians” (University of Minnesota Press, 2001), winner of the 2003 Prize in Atlantic History; Ceremonies of Possession in Europe’s Conquest of the New World, 1492-1640 (Cambridge University Press, 1995; Portuguese edition, 2000) (ACLS E-selection); To Love, Honor, and Obey in Colonial Mexico: Conflicts Over Marriage Choice, 1574-1821 (Stanford University Press, 1988; Spanish edition, 1992), winner of the Bolton Prize and serialized in La Jornada (Mexico City). She is also the editor of José Limón and La Malinche: The Dancer and the Dance (The University of Texas Press, 2007).
