About the event

Synopsis:

Anthropologists, we have a lot of fun and the privilege of learning from and about other peoples. My main take-away from these experiences is that there is so much more I don’t know and can never know. But I do know that many concepts that I “grew up on" are simplified. My goal is to unpack some of these concepts in terms of the diversity that exists in Oaxaca— 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.
