Bio: Hello! My name is Eda Obermanns, and I am currently a Junior at Loyola University Chicago double majoring in History and International Studies with a minor concentration in French Language & Literature. This blog details my current endeavor working as a research assistant to Dr. John Donoghue in the Loyola History Department, delving into the Atlantic world of pirates and sailors. Feel free to leave your thoughts and questions! As a budding historian, I seek to explore all the nooks and crannies of the subject at hand!
