Through Colonial Eyes: Sixteenth-Century Maya Nobleman Gaspar Antonio Chi on the Urban Fabric of Mayapan

March 2, 2016 at 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM

Location:2017 Dunton Tower
Cost:Free
Audience:Anyone

A special guest lecture by Professor Cody Barteet (University of Western Ontario)

The topic is a sixteenth-century Maya nobleman, Gaspar Antonio Chi, and his writings about the ancient Maya centre of Mayapán. Chi was also an employee of the Spanish colonial government, so his interpretation of Mayapán serves a complex web of agendas.

Cody’s lecture will take place Wednesday, March 2, at 2:30-3:30 in Dunton 2017.
