About the event

Synopsis:

This talk will unpack some cherished concepts by illustrating Oaxaca’s amazing diversity from an anthropological perspective: from the ecological to the cultural, by looking back through time and across space. Some themes are maize, language, ethnicity, history v. “pre” history in terms of continuity and change. This is the anthropological perspective--the privilege of learning from and about other peoples.
