Turning Latinas/os/x Into a Month: Mediatizing a Heterogeneous Culture

October 20, 2021
4:15 pmto5:30 pm

Video

Each September, corporations, educational institutions, and media outlets, invest heavily in the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. While the effort is meant to acknowledge the unique contributions of Latinxs, it has, for some organizations, become a way to publicly assert their commitment to diversity without promoting any substantive change. In this panel discussion, three Latinx scholars discuss the role of Hispanic Heritage Month in contemporary society. As part of that discussion, panelists will explore the impact of such celebrations on the actual lived experiences of Latinxs, including which facets of Latinx life are considered worthy of public celebration, and which are obscured and left unaddressed.

Visual Lexicon of Aztec Hieroglyphs, a Stephanie Wood Work-in-Progress Report

April 7, 2021
12:00 pm

VIDEO

To view a recording of this remote event, FOLLOW THIS LINK.

This digital humanities project has as its focus the visual writing system developed by the Nahuas of central Mexico in pre-contact times and which lived on well after contact. This writing system bequeathed a rich historical and cultural corpus of manuscripts (codices) that infuse our knowledge of central Mexican indigenous peoples with respect for their ingenuity, diligent record keeping, appreciation for historical memory and narrative. 

Winner of the CLLAS Faculty Seed Grant, Stephanie Wood is the Director of the Wired Humanities Projects and a Research Associate with the Center for Equity Promotion (CEQP) in the College of Education at the University of Oregon.  Between 1992 and 2015, she taught on campus and directed dozens of theses in various departments, such as History, Latin American Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, International Studies, and Romance Languages. But for more than a decade, her principal focus has been externally-funded digital reference and curricular projects on under-represented aspects of history (Mesoamerican and Native American), primarily with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). She has been the Principal Investigator on eleven NEH projects and has held sub-awards on another two.
