Latin American Art and Culture Colloquium Series

Art & Art History

Carolyn Tate

Professor, History of Pre-Columbian Art, Texas Tech University

Presenter Carolyn Tate is Professor of Pre-Columbian Art History at Texas Tech University. Her courses focus on the art and cultures of Mesoamerica and Native North America. She creates special topics that reflect and intensify her own research interests, so that students participate in the refinement of her ideas and interpretations. Courses such as “The Body and the City in Mesoamerica” stem from her book on the Maya city of Yaxchilan, which is populated by over 100 monumental figures and 90 buildings. Working with students in her courses on “Gender in Mesoamerican Art” and “Creation Narratives in Mesoamerican Art” helped her develop her latest book, Re-Considering Olmec Visual Culture: The Unborn, Women, and Creation (2012). Two major themes in her research involve why Mesoamericans created their elaborate ceremonial cities and how individuals perceived of themselves in relation to social groups and to the symbol-laden cities they built.

 

6 - 8 p .m.   |  JPL 4.04.22   |  Assembly Room   |  Main Campus

This lecture,Visual Memory of Shapes: A Neurobiological Look at the Contributions of Olmec Sculpture to the Origins of Mesoamerican Pictographic Communication Systems,” examines the relationship between stone sculpture of the Olmec, a foundational and early Mesoamerican society, and later Mesoamerican pictorial systems.
