   A research project had Ripon native Christina Hughes traveling in a figurative time machine this summer.
   The senior Spanish major at Lawrence University spent her summer transcribing, editing and translating testimony from inquisitorial trials held in Lima, Peru, a project that transported her from modern-day Appleton to 17th-century South America.
   Based on her exceptional work in the classroom, Hughes, a 2008 graduate of Ripon High School, was approached for the project by Lawrence Assistant Professor of Spanish Madera Allan, whose scholarship interests include the inquisitorial trials.
   “Christina was an obvious choice because she is gifted at deciphering old texts and hard working,” Allan said. “In working with texts like these you need someone who is going to be fastidious, and she’s certainly been that.”
