Household Lake Exploitation and Aquatic Lifeways in Aztec Mexico

The Division of Social Sciences Presents this semester’s Luncheon Seminar Series.

This Brown Bag lunch features:

Professor Kristin De Lucia from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology

Title: Household Lake Exploitation and Aquatic Lifeways in Aztec Mexico

Brief Description: Lake exploitation was central to ways of life and culture for the Aztecs. I will explore archaeological and ethnohistorical evidence for the exploitation of lake resources in the island site of Xaltocan in the northern Basin of Mexico in the pre-conquest period. I will also consider how political, social, and environmental changes caused strategies of lake exploitation to shift through time.

Next Lunch will be on October 24th with Professor Lillethun!
