Indigineous Knowledge (Los Angeles, 8-9 Dec 17)

Los Angeles, Getty Center, December 8 - 09, 2017

Indigineous Knowledge and the Making of Colonial Latin America

This symposium brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to explore the ways in which indigenous knowledge contributed to the making of colonial Latin America. A dozen talks will examine practices related to art, architecture, science, medicine, governance, and the study of the past, among other topics.

This event is related to two exhibitions that showcase magnificent examples of work by indigenous artists and authors: Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas, at the Getty Center, and Visual Voyages: Images of Latin American Nature from Columbus to Darwin, at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, which form part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. This program is generously supported by the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute, the Seaver Institute and the Getty Research Institute.
