Linda R. Manzanilla

Title Conditional: Teotihuacan: An Exceptional Multiethnic City in Pre-Hispanic Central Mexico
Wednesday, April 15, 2015
Time: 6:00 pm | Geballe Room, 220 Stephens Hall

Read "Mexico:Teotihuacán: A Multiethnic Metropolis" by Mario Alberto Castillo in the Fall 2015 Berkeley Review of Latin American Studies.

This talk will stress the exceptional characteristics of the sacred city of Teotihuacan, in central Mexico, during pre-Hispanic times. Its unique multiethnic corporate structure  tore Teotihuacan apart and possibly led to the revolt that set the core of the city on fire in 550 AD.  

Dr. Linda R. Manzanilla is professor and researcher at the Institute of Anthropological Research of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and a member of El Colegio Nacional.
