Why the Aztec King Acamapichtli Became a New Joas: Writing History from the New World in the Sixteenth Century

Soon after the fall of Mexico City, New Spain historians, whether European, Mestizo or Indian, met a double challenge: to historicize Indian memories and Indian pasts and to synchronize local times and memories with Christian-European time and history. New Spain historians created a new writing of history that systematically focused upon the transition from non western to western(ized) societies, anticipating the histories that would be written on British India and Meiji Japan from the nineteenth century onward.

This event is free and open to the general public. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies at (416) 585-4484.
