Hannah C. Griggs

educator, food studies scholar, digital humanist

I currently teach writing and literature core at Boston College, but I will begin a PhD in English at Emory University in the fall. I hold an MA in English literature from Boston College and a BA in English literature and Spanish language and literature from Loyola University New Orleans. As a Master’s student, I became fascinated by the ways in which food and eating shape our perceptions of historical space.  

This interest sparked the creation of Intemperance.org, a digital archive of drinking culture in New Orleans. I’m also a guest curator at The Museum of the American Cocktail, where I have an interactive exhibit that maps Prohibition raids in New Orleans between 1919 and 1933. My work was featured last October in New Orleans & Me, and I recently spoke about my research in Prohibition-era New Orleans in Cocktail History Podcast.
