Tradition and Innovation in Mesoamerican Cultural History contains essays by leading authorities in their fields and rising scholars, covering important areas in a wide range of disciplines. This book is the result of a highly successful conference on Mesoamerica held at California State University, Los Angeles in May 2009, organized as a homage to the distinguished Mesoamerican scholar Tatiana Proskouriakoff (1909-1985) and as a commemoration of the first centenary of her birth. This volume contains papers ranging from linguistics, archeology, and ethnohistory, to art history and literary studies, representing cutting-edge contributions to all of these disciplines. While several papers relate to matters related to the Mayan cultural area, other contributors also provide recent research on other major Mesoamerican cultures such as the Nahuatl and Zapotec, thus encompassing all of the major geographic areas that constitute the cultural hub of Mesoamerica. The volume is divided into four main sections: Tatiana A. Proskouriakoff and Mesoamerican Studies, Oaxaca and the Colonial Zapotec, Maya Writing, Ideology, and Funerary Rituals, and From the Mesoamerican Ballgame to Modern Representations of the Aztecs in Chicano Art and Literature. Octavio Armand, Roberto Cantú, Jessica Joyce Christie, Michela Craveri, Michael Galant Ricardo García, Ignacio López-Calvo, Stephanie Lozano, Pamela Munro, Kevin Terraciano, Rogelio Valencia Rivera, and Tyson White have all provided original work that is comprehensive and interdisciplinary. The editors, Roberto Cantú, Professor of English and Chicano Studies, and Aaron Sonnenschein, Assistant Professor of English, both at California State University, Los Angeles, have provided a carefully edited book that will be an important source of information, interest, and enjoyment for our readers.
