|Event Title:||The Mesoamerica Center Colloquium Series: Patrick Hajovsky (More Information)|
|Event Description:|| |
Patrick Hajovsky discusses the sculptural representations of the Mexica-Aztec king Moteuczoma (r. 1502-20). Across the sculptures, the name and speech signs comment in different ways upon his unique power of command, both as a political agent and as a mediator to the gods.
Hajovsky is Assistant Professor of Art History at Southwestern University, where he has been teaching pre-Columbian and colonial Latin American art since 2009. He is the author of an upcoming book with UT Press (due in 2015), tentatively titled Moteuczoma, On the Lips of Others: Sculpture, Ritual and Fame in Tenochtitlan.
