Graduate Student
Teaching Assistant

Hannah Hamrick is an M.A. student who has worked on the history of alcohol in Native American communities. She is interested in researching the social and cultural damages inflicted by alcohol in Native American communities. Within this, she focuses on how alcohol was used as a trade commodity during the seventeenth and eighteenth century fur trade. This research interest includes the formation of negative stereotyping and advancement of settler colonialism in the United States through the displacement of Indigenous peoples. 

She plans to present research at UGA's HGSA Graduate Student Conference in March 2024 on the Cherokee Nation's temperance movements during the time of Indian removal. 

Hannah is also proudly a founding member of the Native American Student Association (NASA) at UGA, serving as the Vice President from 2021-2022 and the President from 2022-2023. She helped organize numerous events to highlight the Athens-Clarke County's rich Indigenous history, raise awareness for Indigenous issues, and create a safe-space and community for Indigenous students at UGA (and non-Indigenous students as well).

Prior to beginning her graduate degree, Hannah received her B.A. in History at UGA. As a native Georgian, it is imbedded in her DNA to attend UGA and constantly yell "Go Dawgs" and bark at people on game days.
