DHi Speaker Series: Ellen Hoobler: "Of Software and Ceramics"

December 14, 2015
Presenter: 
Janet Thomas Simons, M.S.
Angel David Nieves, Ph.D.
Most people have heard of the ancient Aztecs and Maya, but many other great civilizations flourished in Pre-Columbian Mexico as well. Few are as important and enigmatic as that of the Zapotecs of Oaxaca, in southern Mexico. The Zapotecs built a great capitol, Monte Albán, which rose and fell long before the Spanish invasion of 1519 CE. Since the Zapotec glyphic script was no longer in use by the sixteenth century, and has not been deciphered fully, the culture’s deepest beliefs and values are hard to discern.
